Playing Junior Hockey in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League with the Thorold Blackhawks as a 16 year old last year, and now as a 17 year old this year, has helped develop my speed, puck movement, vision and hockey IQ in order to be a team player in this faster paced game. My ultimate goal is to earn a position on a NCAA hockey team. I am working hard to meet this goal by setting and achieving high standards in both hockey and academics. I managed to maintain an over an 90% average in my high school courses, while earning 17 points as a rookie defenceman, the second highest for a defenceman on our team. I was honoured to be selected to play in the 2017 GOJHL Future Prospects game. This year I increased my points to 24 points in 42 games.
In my minor midget year, I finished with the second highest number of point for a defenceman in our SCTA league. I finished with the highest number of points for a defenceman for our team.
I am looking for a college experience that will help me achieve my highest potential both as a hockey player and student. I am interested in a variety of subjects, such as engineering and architectural design. I am looking for a school that can help advance my education in either of these two fields.
While playing hockey and school take up most of my days, I make time to do extra-curricular activities such as volunteering for my high school's LINK leadership program, and our local minor hockey organization. I have also volunteered for such charities as the Terry Fox Cancer Run, Hats for Horses (horse therapy charity for disabled youth) and our local soup kitchen.
I am looking forward to giving my best to my future college team and school.
