Contrary the difference with Thanasi and the USA is that his Fed knew he wanted to go pro and no one pushed college , I have spent time with his family and his coach who came to visit me last year before he was to get married .
See they have helped Thanasi tremendously as to where our program says you need to dominate each age group win every Jr event possible , Thanasi didnt go down that road and was encouraged to play up even though he didnt prove himself as a Jr . Le Petite , OB, Eddie Herr, ect . They get it .
