Hockey has been a huge part of my life for as long as I remember. My father played hockey his whole life and introduced it to me at a young age. As soon as I could walk, I began to play hockey. Throughout my 12 year hockey career so far, between tournaments, camps, etc., I have been fortunate enough to visited many different college campuses, and see the hockey team’s locker room, rink, and everything else that comes with being a college hockey player. Coaches of those college teams would talk to us and break down what everyday life for a college player was like. Because of this, I knew at a young age, college hockey was my goal.
I feel like I have what it takes to play at the college level. I have been the captain of my team the Northern Express, a Tier II Csdhl team, for three years now, and before that I was an assistant captain for the Chicago Young Americans(Tier1). I feel that one of my greatest skills is my leadership. I take pride in being a leader and make sure my team is always prepared and focused. My team the last two years has won many tournaments, a central states championship, a state championship, and a trip to nationals. I think that I am a very versatile player to my situation and will do whatever it takes to win, whether it is scoring goals or killing penalties. Overall, I think I have the talent on and off the ice, and the grades to play college hockey in the future.
