Getting To Know #6
Best part about Army hockey? The Army Hockey Family I wear #6 because? I have worn it since I can remember. All my friends picked numbers based off their favorite NHL hockey players; I wanted to make a number my own. Song most played on my iPod? I shuffle. Best dressed teammate? Most people will say Drew Pierson, but I strongly disagree. Drew tries really hard, but I'd have to say that Joey Ammon has best captured his own sense of style. Favorite class? Climatology If I weren't playing hockey, I would be? I would probably be a seasonal worker. I would spend winters out west snowboarding and summer I would go to the Caribbean and scuba dive. Pregame rituals? Have a coffee on the way up to the rink, get some touches on the soccer ball with some of the boys, tape my stick and get ready to go. I started playing hockey at age? As soon as I could walk. Two words to describe Coach Riley? Passionate, intense People would be surprised to know ... about me? That I play the guitar and sing every now and then. I've even wrote a song or two. But I'm no Bret Larson or Jay Clark.
