Bennett Te said that he is looking forward to returning to Kaohsiung. He is currently adjusting his condition and body, hoping to become more lean and agile, and to fight side by side with his teammates to advance to the playoffs and win the championship.
Steelers head coach Qiu Dazong said that he knew Bennett a few years ago and he is a very smart big man. “AB is a player with weapons all over his body, and he is an impactful, passionate and aggressive player. At present, we hope AB can lose weight first. If he can make good use of his high efficiency on the offensive end, he will definitely be the patron saint of the Iron Man who plays an important role in both offense and defense.”
