Personal Statement


For as long as I can remember all I wanted to do was play hockey. At the age of four I went out on the ice for the first time and actually hated it. The second time I had to be dragged off because I didn't want to leave. Since then, my love for the game has only grown. By the age of 14 I was playing up north in Buffalo learning how to live on my own in the process. I followed that up with a stay in Boston which was quickly cut short due to an unavoidable injury. I was off the ice for five months to rehab a broken collar bone before being cleared to play again in January. These experiences taught me all about life, both the good and the bad, and I have grown as a person because of it. I realized I was both mentally and physically tougher than I ever thought, and that God had a plan for me.

Outside of hockey I am at the top of my class, being the only 2006 birthyear in the 11th grade while maintaining all A's in the process. I would like to study economics/finance or possibly law in the future. My goal is to have my undergraduate degree as soon as possible, while still maintaining my eligibility. In the community I am a volunteer youth hockey coach teaching other young goalies how to play the game, while also coaching youth teams in the summertime. I take pride in assisting the elderly when I can, usually in the form of labor they can no longer do. I skate out on occasion as a player for fun to stretch out the goalie legs a little. I'm also quite the outdoorsman. I enjoy fishing, hikes through the woods, and being out on the water. When I'm not at the rink or outdoors, I enjoy reading and studying, with a little mini basketball mixed in there too.

My goals match my dreams, to play at the highest level possible and to be a part of a great team. I also strive to be a great leader both on the ice and within my community.
