"I got a text message from Jesse Schwartzman saying, 'Keep your head up. Just keep going forward,'" Schneider said, referring to the goalie who helped the Blue Jays capture NCAA championship in 2005 and 2007. "It is pretty special. I can't appreciate it enough. There's all of the alumni, but Jesse in particular, obviously he's an outstanding goalie and a [U.S. national team] player. So when you hear that from a guy of that stature, you kind of take a step back and realize that people are behind you, and that can boost your confidence."
