While resting on my chair I noticed a picture of him in the upper left of the team photo for 17-18.
I can't believe I don't know anything about him, considering I google the zags everyday and check this message board almost every day. I thought he was 6'11" but when I googled him he was 6'5" a walk-on for the team starting Autumn 17.
However, I don't remember seeing him at Craziness at the Kennel last year - but maybe I was not paying attention.
I can't find mention of him in Old Dogs.
Can anyone inform me (and some of us) of anything about who he was, when he joined the team, how long was he on the team, etc. Is a part of the 'zag family?'
Was he cut from the team, or leave on his own. Is he playing somewhere else.

Seems like he rolled an ankle at the end of a game early in the year and I never saw him play again.

Thought he blew out a knee or something.

Definitely remember him getting hurt at the end of a game early in the year, then being in street clothes when I saw him after that.

Thanks packlite,
all of a sudden I know 20 times more than I did before,
and that might be true for some others in this board.
In terms of media attention he might be one of the 'lowest profile'
zags on the roster for two years, that I can remember.
I hope he is healthy, improves, and gets some minutes by helping the team.
I wonder if his defensive prowess makes him super valuable to the team in practice...
