"Get championships, that's how you get seen. I think it really builds from there. People get good foundation. You know what it takes to win," said Pitchkolan.
At 27, Pitchkolan is a grizzled vet on this team. He has more years of MLS experience under his belt than any other Rhino all time, when those players played in Rochester and that makes him an example to the younger guys.
"I'm not that much of a vocal leader really. I try to set the right example. The guys know where I've been and I think they respect that," said Pitchkolan.
Pitchkolan grew up in Aurora, Colorado, a growing city that calls us out as smaller on it's website. To twist the screws a little, Aurora has over 300 days of sun per year.
"It can be snowing in the morning and 60 in the afternoon. You definitely get plenty of sun," said Pitchkolan.
You realize that Rochester, I believe, has been billed as the second cloudiest city in America?
"Second cloudiest city? I've actually noticed that."
