Having said that, sports is a business; sometimes difficult decisions have to be made. The writing was on the wall...


All the best Zach... And thank you for the memories....
Bang on buddy

Stortini gave it his all to be in the lineup. Its not easy to get into fights when you are out matched on many occasions and to take a beating for the team is admirable. This guy displays true passion and heart.
