My family and I are happy about my signing with the Fighters. I am a little nervous about playing in a country that I have never been to, but after hearing position things from the Fighters scout, I am excited. I am really looking forward to putting on the Fighters uniform. I will first get ready for spring camp so that I can make sure I am ready to use my power during scoring opportunities.
