  • Pima men's soccer coach David Cosgrove informed him that he had big shoes to fill with the departure of Nils Roth, who was a United Soccer Coaches All-American and NJCAA Division I National Champion.
  • Coach's Quote: "Micah brings a great amount of experience. I told him he's coming in to compete for a spot and there's lot of pressure and expectations," Cosgrove said. "He thought it was a terrific situation and loved the challenge. I liked his maturity and confidence and he is a good shot stopper.
    "Nils was comfortable with dictating everything in games and practices. It is terrific to have a leader in that position. Micah has maturity and exposure to high level soccer."
