Cirovski on Gormley: “Chris had some very good moments last year for the team learning a new role—center back. He’s very cool under pressure and plays effortlessly. After missing the entire spring due to injury, he seems rejuvenated to accept a larger role during the fall and will be counted on as a back or a defensive midfielder.“
