My experiences at the Hillside and Winchendon School have been nothing short of successful. I have achieved numerous academic awards such as Honors and High Honors, Excellence in Science Award, and the Citizenship Prize which was awarded to the student who best exemplified true character around his peers. I've always understood that my academics come first as a student athlete, and that time spent in the classroom is more important than on the ice.
My first real year of competitive bantam hockey, I played with the Assabet Valley Patriots and played in a handful of tournaments with the New England Crows. I played prep school hockey with the Hillside School and was coached by Jaymie Harrington. I later pursued prep hockey at the Winchendon School. For My Senior year, I played hockey for the New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs U18 Tier 1 USPHL team, where we played around 60+ games including tournaments like the Dallas and Chicago World Invite. 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 10 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.
