Coaches Q&A with Jeff Hollenbach: 

What does Mike bring to the table at running back?

“Mike brings a terrific amount of speed to the table. His breakaway speed is outstanding. I like the way he ran last year because of his toughness. He doesn’t run away from people, he runs through people. He is good at making players miss. He is one of the best running backs in Pennridge history. ”

What kind of leader is he?

“To give you a idea, when I left the weight room the other day he was among the last two or three. He really wants it and he is working real hard. He is a quiet confident leader. He is a excellent young man. He is real coachable. He is a team player.”
