Coach Haase On Fahro
"Fahro fills a great need for us up front. We have a couple of big guys, but there isn't a lot of front court depth. First and foremost, he is a fantastic kid. On the court, he has good hands and has the ability to score the ball in the low post. He has the size and strength to be a good defender as well."
