Blocking, jamming…I just want to be relevant in game play, but my most natural instincts are to help you get the points, protect you so you can go on with your bad self, realize your potential. Though the other side of the coin presents perennial challenges, we’re lucky in Providence that our size means we really know and care about each other.
