Michael was a tremendous addition to our program and helped change a culture here at USF. We set a school record in wins last year and he was a big part of that. He does sit upper 80’s and has a really good CH and breaking ball. I love Vooch. His work ethic is something that I hope and pray that my son has. First to the ballpark and last one to leave. Michael is a very good teammate. When it’s not his turn to shine, he is rooting for his teammates regardless of the situation to succeed and is willing to help out whenever needed. Like I said before, I love Vooch. Super good human that is going to work his tail off. Anything that I can do for him, I will.
