Personal Statement

My academic focus is on business related studies.  I‘m an athlete before a hockey goalie and have been training with a personal trainer since age twelve.   This training has given me very explosive movement for a  bantam goalie.  It has also helped me to be an elite puck handling and skating goalie.  It’s difficult to effectively dump and chase against me.  I’ve also logged 4 assists in my time in Bantam A.  I’m extremely strong and have good balance.  Bumping into me is a mistake not many will make more than once.   All of my coaches from mites on up will attest to my attitude and coachability, and I always try to be a positive influence and leader.   There have been several elite athletes in my family and my dad had the opportunity to play NCAA hockey.   I believe that I have two critical attributes that can’t be coached which make me a good prospect.  My reaction speed is very good for my age.   I’m also a leader in every locker room I’m in.  Leadership comes naturally for me as I get along with everyone and I work hard in the off-season and between games.    I expect my teammates to do the same.   I also handle, pass, and shoot the puck with great strength and accuracy and have about three assists per season on average.  Finally, I can be physical at times and will occasionally body check the fore checker as he touches the puck on a dump in.   My dad  started teaching me the position at age seven, but I didn‘t practice or play goalie full time until I was 11.  He “followed the book” and that allowed me to develop a more complete knowledge of the game and developed my skating.  I played out at wing for the first time in three years for one AAA tournament in 2020 and had 2 G 1 A.  I try to use the most efficient aspects of both modern butterfly and old North American standup technique.  I also use both blocking and reactive postures and try to do so at the optimum time.  My family moved to MN to give me better training and a better path to playing NCAA hockey than my dad had to take.   I’ve gotten .920 or better on the season all but twice in every league I’ve played in.   I have 34 shutouts in my amateur hockey career.   I’m working towards committing to Tier 1 or 2 Juniors for up to three seasons after HS and then a D1 college.
