Head coach Tim Corbin on Romero: “Although Max wasn’t active last year, he will be a very visible participant this year. He has improved in so many different ways in 12 months. He took a proactive approach to academics when he wasn’t playing and it impacted his confidence in multiple ways. That confidence has carried over to his physical abilities on the field and the difference is very noticeable. His tools play loud and he has a deep passion for the game. We will enjoy watching his growth.”
