After a tough 14-13 loss at the hands of the Chesapeake Bayhawks, the downcast looks that so often plaster the faces of Launch players this season appeared once again. Unsurprisingly, Brett Queener, the reserve goalie for the Launch, lived up to his talkative reputation and decided to participate in an interview with Florida Lacrosse News.
