“Derek is the type of guy that will let you know if you’re doing some stuff wrong and get after you that type of way.  …But also, he’s one of the hardest workers out here. I am the type of guy that tries to lead by example, just by doing the right things — always giving my best. Just trying to be a professional and being the best I can be for this team. Those are some of the qualities that I bring to the team, just doing things right.”~Domata Peko.
