Not only does he possess the intelligence and technical ability to control the game from the middle, but arguably his greatest characteristic is his tenacity and desire to win. He is a ferocious competitor, a leader on the field and I know he will feel at home here in the El Paso community. I want to thank Jacksonville Armada for helping with this process, and I cannot wait to reunite with Yuma in January,” said Lowry.
