It’s hard to believe that Timmy has been playing for 6 years; the time really does fly when you are having fun. His on and off the field contributions have helped the Sharks and Hibernians remain competitive throughout the years. His recent campaign to rally the troops to work out through the ‘Shark Fit’ training sessions is an example of his commitment to the goals he details below. Week in and week out he demonstrates that despite his brother getting the ‘skinny gene,’ Timmy got all the personality and hands in the family. Let’s hope he sticks with his training program and picks up the hard yards that will be paramount to the Sharks success in 2012 and beyond.
