Coach Mullins on Roland...
"As the only senior on the team he is very focused for the team to succeed. After
a strong summer and with his work ethic, he will help the team tremendously this
season. Last year his focus was more on smallbore that on air rifle. I think
that this season he will really come around in air rifle and make a solid impact
in both guns. Andrew will have a great senior year."
