What do you like most about BA?
The ability to wake up every morning and go to work doing something that I have so much passion for and be around great kids. I have always loved hockey and being around kids. Having the opportunity make a positive impact on a young kid who is chasing the same dream I once was both on and off the ice. Can’t say enough great things about the great kids, parents, environment and staff we have at this organization.
Why is it important to have solid academics in addition to good hockey training?
Having solid academics makes everything in life a lot easier. Every athlete I have ever been around that is solid on the ice and with academics has gone on to be successful. With solid academics you always have a backup plan. Just like in hockey you have to have a B game. You’re not always going to play your A game so successful players and people always have a B game.
Who was one coach/teacher that had the biggest impact on your life?
Joe Dziedzic – Have learned so much from over the years as a player, coach and mentor. He has taught me so many life skills and have always looked up to him for the adversity he had to overcome.
