“I’m excited to be tendered by a successful team such as the Rebels” stated Serafin. “They have an excellent record of moving players onto the next level. It’s what attracted me to them” concluded Serafin.
“John brings size to our defensive group” stated Rebels Director of Scouting Billy Pugliese. “I think he can develop into a very difficult player for opponents to play against” said Pugliese.
