Colavecchia on Rose: "Matt initially was uncertain about his last year. After sitting out this spring, he appears to have rejuvenated his appetite for the game. I am glad that he has decided to play his senior year because his experience will prove invaluable. He is an excellent crosser of the ball and has a tendencey to score very important goals."
