This season I will be playing for the USPHL Utica Jr. Comets - Premier. This is my second year in Utica and I am looking forward to the competition on the East coast and the many showcases we will be attending. As a Texas high school senior, I will be billeting again with a wonderful family in Vernon, NY and fully expect to make Honor Roll again this year.
My hockey plans are to play Tier II junior hockey again the following year. Even though I was thrilled to be the starting goalie last season, my SV% and GAA were not as good as I would like. However, facing an average of 57 shots per game gave me the opportunity to grow as a goalie, finishing the last quarter of the season with 91.6 SV%
I am looking forward to continual improvement and will be working with goalie coaches from area colleges and the AHL team as time permits. I don't yet know what college hockey would be best for me, so I am open to all options. I have traveled through the Northeast, the Midwest, and into Canada with the travel teams. I have found that I enjoy each city, each town, and each campus I have visited. As my parents have said, your happiness is what you make it; so at this point, I have not placed any preconceived ideas about where I would be happiest.
If your team is shopping for a goalie for the '20-'21 season, look forward to answering any questions you may have.
