Chris Newell

Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers, Manager

Robert is one of the best guys both on and off the field I’ve ever managed! He’s a pro in every sense of the word and I have two championship rings at the professional level largely because of him! He makes everyone around him better because of how he goes about his business day in and day out. He’s the guy you want up with the game on the line. Young players as well as veterans gravitate to him because he’s a reliable leader! His knowledge of the game is second to none and I will forever be indebted to him.

Eric Holtz
