Old recruiting stories

This evening, I went through some old recruiting stories that I wrote when the three seniors committed. I got a little bit of a laugh out of it because the quotes from their coaches couldn’t have been any more spot on. I figured I had to share them.

Former Tri-City coach Bliss Littler on Mario Lamoureux: “He’s an awesome kid. He’s a tireless worker. He’s a mentally tough kid and a physically tough kid. He’s a player you want on your side. I imagine at some point he’ll be a leader there.”

Shattuck-St. Mary’s coach Tom Ward on Ben Blood: “Ben plays plenty physical. He’s going to be a horse.”

Former Okotoks Oilers coach Garry VanHereweghe on Brad Eidsness: “He’s an outstanding student who values academics as much as hockey.”
