    “”He’s a good four-year rower,”” said men’s crew head coach Michael Filippone. “”Whatever the team asked of him, he didn’t question. He practiced hard every day.””

    Though he was not necessarily a star, Troxil had his highlights. He was a member of this year’s varsity four boat that took first place at the Newport Invitational. He was also a member of the varsity four boat that placed third at the Pacific Coast Rowing Championships.

    Last year, he was a member of the varsity four boat that took first at the San Diego City Championships.

    “”He’s the consummate team player,”” Filippone said. “”He gave 100 percent to the team all four years.””

    Troxil brought some much-needed guidance to this year’s team.

    “”There was kind of a void,”” Filippone said. “”There weren’t a lot of four-year oarsmen. He was always a team supporter. He had a couple of good races.””

    Troxil was a good example to the many youngsters currently manning the boats. He loved rowing and did everything for the team’s success.

    “”He came out for the squad four years ago,”” Filippone said. “”The impact of racing is pretty clear. He had an allegiance to the team.””
