Coach Gordon of Timber Creek High School Lax remembered Mikey this way:
 
"He was such a joy and pleasure to be around. His attitude, work ethic and personality were infectious. As a coach you couldn't have asked for a better player. He was talented, worked hard, and pushed his teammates to be the best they could be. He believed in the coaching staff, his teammates and the Timber Creek Lax program. He helped lead our team by always being an example on and off the field. You always hear how impactful coaches can be in a players life, but in reality players like him impact the lives of coaches just as much. He made coaching fun and easy. His passion to get better and grow the sport was second to none. He will forever be missed but never forgotten... Once a Wolf, Always a Wolf."
