John Whitlinger & David Hodge Say: "Chris is a player with a lot of talent. He's not an overpowering player, but he wins with his quickness and his mental ability. He's had some big wins in the past in junior tennis. He's very capable of playing big time tennis. He's worked very hard this past year and I really like where he's at right now. If he continues to progress as he has this past fall, he can become a factor for our team."
