Coach Kevin O'Neill on Luter- “If Charles' knee comes back the way we're hoping it does and with the hard work he's put in, we think it will, he can be a major contributor at both wing positions. He's struggled the past two years and they have been tough for him, but I look for Charles to be a solid performer for us this year.”
