Few Hurricanes fans speak up louder than Lazaro Armando Arribas — better known as CutlerRidge Laz. He dials into WQAM’s Joe Rose Show often to provide his thoughts on his favorite team. So who is Laz’s all-time favorite Hurricane?

“Gino Torretta. This doesn’t only have to do with Gino's unmatched success as a Hurricane. I have personal reasons. During all of Gino’s career as a Cane my mom [Dalia] was fighting cancer. It was a dark time in my life. The Miami Hurricanes were the only break from the suffering that cancer brings a child who’s watching a parent die. Gino is also the most decorated Miami Hurricane of all time, and everyone loves a winner. He’s good people too and always a gentleman when we see each other.”
