"Chris will be our go-to midfielder once again. He certainly has the all around skills to play both ways, but will play as much offense as possible. A variety of midfielders will run with Hogan, but he draws the attention. He could be the best middie in Division I, certainly one of the most dangerous with the ball." -- Coach Thiel
