"He's done a lot for us," coach Charley Toomey said Wednesday. "I'm watching him make plays, and some of them are unbelievable plays and some of them are like, 'No, no, no, no, not right now, Brian.' But he plays with such energy that sometimes it's hard to defend that type of energy on the other side of the field. Brian's got a long leash with us as coaches. I think that's because he's been a real leader for us."
