My experience at the Hillside School has been a successful one. With eight terms under my belt, I have completed three terms with Honors and five terms with High Honors, all while making the Headmaster’s List. My first year at this School I achieved the Citizenship Prize which was awarded to the student who best exemplified true character. The Hillside Community has been a privilege to be a part of and has provided me the tools necessary to attend a Secondary School. My favorite subjects are History, Mandarin, and Biology.
My first real year of competitive bantam hockey I played hockey with the Assabet Valley Patriots and played in a handful of tournaments with the New England Crows. This year I played half a season with the U15 Minuteman Flames and helped the team play in the State Championships. This past winter I played prep school hockey with Hillside School and was coached by Jaymie Harrington. My source of training has come from a variety of different coaches that have played in the NHL or D1 hockey. Graeme Townshend is a former NHL player that I have been training with for the past 6 years and has helped me grow as a player and a person.
I see myself as a hard working student athlete willing to do what it takes to get to the next level. I also believe that skill, and experience is built by a great work ethic. Many opportunities to learn from the game have presented themselves, whether it be on the ice, or at home, I take advantage of all of them. On the ice, I see myself as a playmaker: knows how to move pucks to players and to the net, and protects the house well in the Defensive Zone. To sum it all up, I’m a hard working student athlete willing to learn from every source of knowledge I can.
