I am a senior in high school at the age of 17 and I play for the Juniors full-season team Walpole Express, the Boston Brahmas, and the Leprechauns tournament team. I played on the Dedham High Varsity team from 8th grade- 11th grade. I started playing hockey when I was 6 on the DYH program with boys up until eighth grade, and I loved every single second of being on the ice, unfortunately for my mom and dad who had to drive me to western Mass and Cape Cod for every tournament, buy me a brand-new stick and pair of the latest skates every year, wake up at 6:30 to drive me to early-morning hockey games, and pay for everything that came along with having a kid who's obsessed with hockey. Ever since then I knew I wanted to play for the rest of my life, especially in college as I was so excited to play in the most competitive (besides professional) level of the sport. Now that I'm here, I wish to play for a team that will challenge me, make me improve daily, and have the best time of my life. My goals and aspirations in college hockey include making it onto the perfect team for myself, using my skills to better the team and become an asset, make great connections with my teammates, and win a championship game. To get to play in college would be an honor and a fulfillment of a decade-long dream. After college, I aspire to be a biologist, but also as a full-time hockey coach. I am a good candidate for a college hockey team because I put in the hard work every day, am a team player, and a dedicated and committed person and player. What makes me different from other recruits is that you'll never find me slacking off or not working my hardest, I play all positions (I played defense for a while, then in high school I've predominantly been center or left wing), I like to build personal connections with my coaches, and I am very dedicated. Academically, I am a dedicated student and have maintained all As almost every term since 6th grade, have been in all honors or AP classes since middle school, am in many clubs, and have received many academic achievement awards. I believe I have lots to offer on any team, so I hope you consider me!
