Coach Hanson on Moorhead: I can't really say much more about Jay. Jay's the best player I've had the privilege of coaching. It's not only because of his ability, but it is because of his work ethic. It's his understanding of the game. He is a leader and it is all very natural to him, very instinctive. He's not the biggest kid, he's 5-11 and probably goes about 175-80 pounds at the most and he's going in playing a position that most teams have a 6-3, 220 pound person playing in that position. A lot of those teams also have big guys who guard those positions and he has taken them all on. The fact that he's scored as many goals as he has is tremendous.
