Luzzi on Totsch: "Sean is from our back yard in the Chicago suburbs, and he is the kind of person and player that fits our program and our style of play very well. Sean actually graduated from high school early and started at NIU in January. In the time we have been together so far in our spring season, Sean has shown that he will be a very good player for us. His ability to consistently connect passes, his physical strength, and his honest work rate has allowed him to step right in and compete with our returning players this spring."
