Atlanta United Center Back Michael Parkhurst talks about joining the Hawks last night and who he will pick to win the NCAA Tournament this year, noting "​"I haven't watched many games this year, I probably should do some research but I can tell you this, I will not have Duke winning it."

Parkhurst talks about the team finally getting a break for a few days this week and the development of Miles Robinson, "we've all seen the potential, he's the best one on one individual defender I've ever played with including national team players and European players."

Michael also chats about if he feels things are coming together for the team stating "it's been real inconsistent for us and things slowed down for us against Philadelphia over the weekend. We're not pleased we only have two points in MLS play, but the pieces re all there and when it comes together we'll be back flying high and right in it" and adds that with the time off they'll finally be able to start preparing for teams properly. 

Parkhurst closes by discussing Frank de Boer and what he's learned about him, "he's willing to talk to the players, runs good training sessions, and demands alot of us on both sides of the ball and guys are getting used to that. We're going to have a successful team under him."
