Playing Junior A Hockey in the CCHL with the Carleton Place Junior A Canadians, 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 throughout high school, while earning 17 points as a rookie defenceman in the GOJHL, the second highest for a defenceman on our team. I was honoured to be selected to play in the 2017 GOJHL Future Prospects game. In my second year of GOJHL, I increased by points to 24 points, with 9 goals and 15 assists.
This year, I will play with the Carleton Place Canadians, and play both on the power play and penalty kill. We are lucky enough to be playing games, and I have had the opportunity to score and assist in several games.
In my minor midget year, I finished with the second highest number of point for a defenseman in our SCTA league, and the highest number of points for a defenseman 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.
