Ryan Fitzgerald, General Manager said that “Tabo has come in this offseason ready to work and take on the 2020 season. He is a great teammate and has done everything we have asked of him.
He has the toughness and physical style of play that you need in this league. Getting here early this offseason has really helped him get more and more consistent around the pitch with his overall game.
Excited for his opportunity as we come into camp and compete. A good, young player to have on our side.”👑 #GoldReign
