We're getting underway with tonight's @107ist meet and greet with coach Gio Savarese! Props to @stephanzy106 for kicking it off #RCTID Gio started off by thanking TA for the show of support at the last match following the passing of his father. He said that meant a lot to him and to relatives who saw it on the broadcast. #RCTID
