“Dylan Curtis has been an absolute pleasure to coach. He makes my job easy because he’s the type of individual who does what he’s asked for the betterment of the team. In the role of a student-athlete, his academic standing has been excellent. He’s a leader within our team as a player, and sets a great academic standard for his teammates. He has also helped some of the younger guys on the team with their academics. He’s just an great overall leader in the classroom and on the field and finds a way to give back to the community.” - Head Coach Dwayne Shaffer
