Coaches Comments: "Tommy is a strong, solid point guard that creates for his team-mates and himself off the dribble. 

    He sees the floor well, and would rather dish an assist than shoot a contested shot.  Tommy worked hard on his game

    over the summer and in practice, and is one of the hardest workers on the team."
