I had the privilege of being a volunteer this past week in Omaha for the USA Hockey High School Nationals tournament. I am writing this note to share with you the incredible experiences I had with your team both on and off the ice. My responsibilities for the tournament included maintaining team security as well as overseeing all locker rooms. While there were teams there from across the country, PC stood out as having the classiest athletes and coaches of them all. In a time when teens so often are lambasted for their behavior, PC should take great pride in the future leaders they are producing. Every single person associated with the PC Hockey program that was present carried themselves with complete dignity, confidence, and class. As PC moves forward from this incredibly successful week, let me wish you nothing but the best. PC is obviously a world-class organization raising world-class people and I am a better person for having interacted with them.
Editor’s Note: The Providence Catholic Hockey Players have an excellent role model from which to learn class as evidenced by Head Coach Nick Iaciancio’s thank you letter to AHAI after participating in USA Hockey’s High School Nationals. Click HERE to read Coach Iaciancio’s letter.
