"He's been great as a member of our team's leadership council and his leadership role in the dressing room continues to grow,” said BU coach Jack Parker in a team release. “It's not only deserving, but appropriate, that we put an 'A' on his shirt."

I was looking at the pictures you included in the post, especially the one in which those players hold a trophy and that reminded me an article I read on a pay per head service website about how they became champions
