Through my many years of sports, its always been my goal to be better than the guy next to me. In hockey the margin for error is small. Their are small amounts of spots opens on teams and if you take weeks off to train or get better, that person somewhere else took your spot because they had the work ethic and will to pursue their dream. This has kept me motivated through my years of sports.
I've had many ups and downs in my career, but one of my ups might be losing our semifinal game to make it to the champioship in my last year of bantam. This pushed me to get better and strive to do better than last season. It also taught me the power of a team. When united, a team can overcome anything. As individuals, nothing works out and their is no chemistry on or off the ice.
I became interested in hockey when i was about 2 watching my brother play his hockey. I told my parents i wanted to play hockey and my brother and parents helped me out along the way. As soon as i stepped foot on the ice i fell in love with it.
