    “That he gave his heart and soul to his teammates; that he left it all on the field, and the product was both entertaining and impressive,” said Chirico. “Kash was blessed with size, strength, and athletic ability, but it was his hard work and perseverance that allowed him to develop into the gifted athlete he is today.”
