I once thought that breaking my collar bone and hand within a few short months, was the worst thing that could ever happen to me in my hockey career. Yet, in truth, it helped me to understand the desire and love I have to play the great game of hockey. Through some time of healing, I not only grew myself as a person but also as a player. As my team won a tournament, I was forced to sit in the stands and watch the team that I had helped lead as the Captain that year. This put in perspective the privilege I have to play hockey and that every moment I get to play hockey should be valued. Every moment on the Ice, practicing in my garage, or at the local pond, should be used to develop myself and others.
I am fortunate enough to be apart of a great varsity high school hockey program at Stoney Creek. With great coaching and teammates that help me to learn the power of teamwork, commitment, and sacrifice. My ultimate goal is to play college-level hockey. I happily boast the 3.95 GPA that I wish to improve further over my high school years. I am looking to find a program that will not only fit me athletically but also academically. I believe I have what it takes to be on your team!
