My name is Alex Johnston, I live in Warren, MI and I graduated from Warren Mott High School in 2013. I have been playing hockey ever since I was four years old and my dream has always been to play college hockey. For me college hockey is the next stepping stone in my hockey career. Playing hockey in college is a great opportunity for me to be able to keep going to school, so that I have a career after my playing days are over. Among the benefits that I can bring to a college hockey team is that I am a leader by example on and off the ice. I devote my time not only in the classroom, but off the ice as well & volunteer through the National Honor Society at my school. I take tremendous pride in continuing to improve my game each and every single day. If I am not skating or working on school work after school I am in the weight room. I continue to believe that I am the hardest worker in the weight room and no one will ever work harder than I do. My objective is to be the hardest worker on any team that I play for and to lead by example for others. Every coach that I have played for has said that I am coachable and well respected by my teammates for my work ethic and leadership skills. I always have to ask myself, "Is that the best I can do?" I ask myself this because I set high standards for myself and I know that I can always achieve no matter what obstacle may be in my way. I have played hockey in Europe on several occasions with the Selects Hockey Program ran by Travis Howe and Joe Templin. Every time I have played over in Europe it has been a learning experience and each experience I will remember for the rest of my life. Out of my fourteen years of playing hockey I have been playing AAA for eight years. My aspirations are to play Tier 1 junior a hockey next season and after junior hockey earn the right to play for a prestigious College or University. Most importantly I believe that with my work ethic, experience, leadership skills, and willingness to win and compete every single day I can be a great asset to any college program.
