Quote from Head Coach Joe Hadachek: "Jon Porter is the type of player that makes a team great. He worked four years to get on the field this year. There's an old western saying that goes like this...'The cowards never even started, the weak died along the way, only the strong survived.' That is a great definition of Jon Porter."
