"Tori has been instrumental in the growth of our program in my two years at UE. I had the opportunity to hire her right as her professional playing career was coming to a close, and I have seen her grow tremendously as a coach and a recruiter in her two years here," Scherr-Wells stated.  "I know she will do a fantastic job leading our recruiting efforts moving forward!"

He is an excellent relationship builder, and our program will benefit greatly with him in this role."
