My goal is to play hockey at the highest level possible. I see US collegiate hockey as one of the best avenues to achieve my goals of continuing my hockey career and obtaining the best education possible. I am interested in being challenged academically and athletically. I have dedicated myself to following strict nutritional and workout regimens for the past three years. I avoid processed foods and do not eat anything with added sugars. I avoid anything fried and balance my high protein intake with copious amounts of fruits and vegetables. I strive to do every pushup, pullup, bench press, etc. to the best of my ability. I want to be in an environment where I am not different from other recruits, but rather I want to be surrounded by like-minded recruits and teammates. I want to be in an environment where we are all working towards a goal of pushing each other to make everyone better and ultimately the team better. I see this as applying not only to athletics, but academics as well.
