Coach Comments: Lorenzo came to the game a volleyball a little later than some of the other players but he has fully committed himself these last two years. He has a passion for the game that is great to see and it inspires the players around him. He has grown as a player every year but it was especially noticeable from last year to this year.  He loves to play the game, whether it is in practice or during matches and it is great to see his enthusiasm for the game. He has the ability and knowledge to play any position in the front row. He is a two-year varsity letter winner for volleyball and one year for soccer. He is a Hawks Ambassador and on the Scholastic Scrimmage team. Lorenzo will be going to DeSales University to study Computer Science and plans on playing intramural volleyball.
