TRINITY EPISCOPAL HEAD COACH DAVID KING  "Tip is the ultimate competitor and doesn't lack for confidence. He's coming to Nashville to play.

"Tip has a different gear, and just has incredible quickness. He has outstanding hands and leaps really well for his size. Tip's also one of the most relentless guys I've ever known, just a weight room hound that works extremely hard.

"Tip was absolutely a threat to score each time he touched the ball. Combine that with the fire he has in his belly and you're looking at a truly special player."
