MICHIO MCGRATH
Center

“Midda, Mitch”

#6

Mich is a hard, tough center player. Capable of shutting down even the best midfielders in the league. He is also explosive of the halfback line with a tendency to sneak up and snag a goal or two. Goes so hard after games, even vomiting doesn’t slow him down. He also looks terrible in black and white.
