Kurt Holobaugh bought again in the profitable column (more than Joziro Boye). Kenny Cross went in there and did what he does against a rough kid in Jarel Askew. Danielle Taylor and Jessica (Aguilar) did accurately what they considered we would. And then the (Guihlherme) Faria and (Andre) Soukhamthath struggle was just fantastic ton of athleticism in there those people men genuinely went at it.
