    Coach Lenahan on Worku: "We saw Getenet two summers ago when he led his Minnesota Thunder team to the Region II Championship and he was the best player on the field. He has great quickness and good instincts around the box. He has good versatility and can play up top or as a wide player. In addition to his talents, he has a wonderful personality that will make him a great teammate and one of the more popular student-athletes at Northwestern."
