It’s more than a stick to Orozco. It’s a passport; it’s a gateway to new friends and experiences. Field hockey has been a focal point in Orozco’s life since 2007 when he learned about the game in physical education class. He earned his first cap with the Senior Men's National Team in Brazil for World League Round II after replacing an injured athlete on the roster.
