When Andy Copelan was named head coach of Waterdogs LC, he approached the Expansion Draft looking for two-way midfielders. And with the first overall pick in the 2020 Entry Draft, he selected the best two-way midfielder on the planet: Zach Currier.

Currier and the Waterdogs dominated between the arcs. They dictated the tempo -- opponents only scored 1.4 fast break goals per game against them (lowest in the league). Currier consistently beat opponents to the hole and to 50-50 groundballs off the faceoff wings.

The 2021 Gait Brothers Midfielder of the Year is always hitching on the offensive end. His stick is up and ready to shoot or pass -- right until he sees an opening to drive topside or underneath.
