Coach Maisonneuve on DesRoches: “Connor is a Columbus native that has the versatility to play just about anywhere on the field. He has the size and strength to do really well at the college level with soft feet to make him dangerous going forward and building out of the back. His understanding of the game and ability to read attackers makes him dominate at the high school and club level. Connor does exceptional in the classroom and really has all attributes we look for in a student athlete. So excited to keep Connor here in Columbus.”
