I have been playing hockey since I was a very young kid. There has not been a time on the ice when I haven’t loved every second of it. This summer, I was lucky enough to play against and with many D1 commits. I was also one of three public school players selected for the Mass CCM USA hockey player development. I found I was capable of competing with elite players and found the game even more enjoyable. These opportunities have given me confidence and motivation to try to play in college.
One of my greatest strengths is my hockey IQ. Coaches can rely on me to find good outlet passes quickly. I have always been a team player in all the sports I have played. I also hold myself to a high standard in sportsmanship. I won a hockey award for sportsmanship and overall play. I am a very coachable player and I strive to be the hardest worker out there. Coming out of freshman year I weighed 125 pounds and wasn’t very strong. As of right now, about a year later, I’m 175 pounds and much stronger.
In my family, education comes first and I work very hard in school taking challenging classes and maintaining a high gpa. My favorite subjects are history and science. I find that my workouts and participation in sports helps me to focus when I am studying.
My goal is to attend a college that has good academics and a hockey program that will push me to keep improving. I am open to different college sizes and divisions. I ultimately want to find the right college fit at the highest competition level.
