Why Wisconsin?
"Excellent school, excellent coaching staff with great tradition. My friend Arnel (Zahirovic), who is on the team, said I would fit in well. I want to be part of something special."

Trask on Zadro:
"Tomislav joins us from Illinois Central College where he was a teammate of Arnie's (Zahivoric) and comes highly recommended by Head Coach Oz Birkaran. Tomislav will bring passion and quality to the midfield, a natural left footed player who can dictate the rhythm of the game as well as score goals. He has great size and instincts and will be looked at to help generate attacks for the next two years."
