MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — Following his team's 15-6 win over St. Bernard's in the Massachusetts Division 3 Central/West final last Friday, Grafton coach Alan Rotatori reflected on what makes it so hard to defend junior attackman Jack Gurney.
"He's just kind of a shifty player and he can play both sides," Rotatori said. "He's really almost perfected his move from X. But his dodging, his split-dodge is really different than most people. You almost guess every time the wrong way because of the little hesitation step that he does. It's very unique. I haven't seen something like that in anybody, to be honest with you."
Asked to assess his own strengths as a player, Gurney's answer echoed that of his coach.
