Tuckers career at Johns Hopkins set him on the path to being one of the best defenseman in the game, said Greg Tate, STX Mens Marketing Manager. Seeing Tucker play down the road from STX at Hopkins and during Team USA tryouts, its evident that he is not only a top-level player but also truly representative of the STX brand and a great fit as an STX athlete.
