Personal Statement

This season I am excited to be playing with the OJHL North York Rangers. It was both a hockey goal and an honour to have been offered a position by the OHL Flint Firebirds (1st round, 2nd overall in the U18 Priority Selection Draft), however, my NCAA eligibility is critical in achieving my academic goal. Last season I played for the GTHL Toronto Young Nationals Midget AAA hockey team, 6th ranked team in Canada (53-12-9), top ranked team in Ontario (48-10-9), winning the Scotiabank Playoffs, the OHF's and the Telus Cup. We won the Telus Cup 2-1 in double overtime to be crowned Canadian National Champions. In the final game, I stopped 49 of 50 shots, took home MVP honours and am honoured to have my helmet and picture holding the Telus Cup displayed in the Hockey Hall of Fame North American Champions exhibit. Last season I played 54 games (40-7-7), participated in the GTHL Midget AAA All Star game (16 shots, 0 goals) and was an AP for the OJHL St. Michaels Buzzers. We also won the Sudbury Nickel Tournament where I played all 6 games and was chosen as MVP for 2 of the games and in the 2019 OHL Championship game I was MVP and recorded a shutout. In Minor Midget, I played with the Toronto Young Nationals AAA team and was selected to play in the OHL Gold Cup for Team GTHL Red.

I've graduated from St. Michael's College School (Toronto) as an accelerated honours student with a 3.91 GPA. In grade 11, I played Junior Hockey and Varsity Lacrosse. In grade 12, our Varsity Lacrosse team won the CISSA championship. I also played Elite Club Level lacrosse (long pole) for one of Canada's top programs, Edge. Outside of my sports and school, I work as a goalie instructor with Piero Greco (NY Islanders Goalie Coach) and run a lacrosse program for inner city kids in Regent Park.

With aspirations to play Division 1 Hockey, to earn a degree in kinesiology and to give back to my community, I have a heightened awareness of what is real and essential in life. Dedication and commitment to my academics and sports teams, giving back to those less fortunate then me and my unrelenting work ethic both on and off the ice all add fuel to my passion to be the best that I can be, as an athlete, as a student, and most importantly as a person.
