Close friend and Nazareth teammate, Terry Goetz, introduced Brent Rothfuss, saying that Rothfuss is very talented, very passionate and a leader. He then recounted Brent's many accomplishments.
Early in his speech Rothfuss noted that "I have been lucky to meet some of the best people to be in my life. I have had great coaches and great friends and I am honored with a great family." He then went on to acknowledge each of his coaches starting with Mark Rice who allowed him be a JV ball boy as a third grader.
He said that one of the best lessons learned in high school lacrosse was that in it's best form it is always fun. "Whether is was a game, or practice or whatever, it was always fun."
He thanked his college coach, Scott Nelson, for taking his game "to the next level". He then talked about his many lacrosse friends. "All of you guys made my time at Nazareth so much fun."
"The best part about this game is the people that are involved in the game and the people that I've met."
