Richo says:

“A consistent presence in the Tigers’ unique style of play throughout the past four years. Provides pressure and two-way gut running that is crucial to the team’s front half. Again averaged nearly a goal a game in a tough position to play at times. Is a threat in the air as well as at ground level. Should get more credit outside the Richmond bubble. Never misses a game.”
