"We had a great season overall, and I can’t thank the guys enough for sacrificing their personal time to compete hard in every single game we played," James Wood, 2017 coach and Semi-Senior Accountant, said. "Nisivoccia LLP is lucky to have these gentlemen, who represented the firm well this season through their 1st class sportsmanship and team mentality. I had a great time managing the team this year, and it’s due to having a solid team of competitive individuals looking to win every time we took the field."
James also thanked Mark Jensen, former coach and Director of IT, for helping keep team morale up throughout the season.
"Lastly, I would like to thank you, our fellow co-workers, for the support and interest throughout the season. We are looking forward to another season next year," James said.
