Cole is a senior on the gator hockey team. Cole started playing hockey in 7th grade when he was 12 years old. Cole always tells himself to strive to be the best, but have fun at the same time. His favorite thing about the position he plays is that he is in the center of the action and supports the center. He chose the position he plays because center takes a lot of energy and he is better at wing. Cole loves being on the ice during games when everyone cheers and bangs on the boards. He loves being a role model to the underclassmen and will be there to help and cheer them on. He always tells himself “the harder I work the better the result.” A pregame ritual he has is getting Chick-fil-a with his mom. When stepping on the ice he looks to where his parents are sitting and when he hears the cheers he can’t help but smile. He wants to play during college for an adult league. He doesn’t want to play competitive hockey any further because he wants it to stay fun and not be a chore
Josh is a senior on the Gator hockey team, He was always good at skating so he decided to use his talent for a sport. He started playing at the age of 10. Josh’s favorite thing about the position he plays is the feeling of destroying people on the ice. His mind before a game is calm and knows if he concentrates on the game no one will get past him. Josh hates losing and strives to be the best. He always puts his everything he has on the ice, and has faith in his boys because he knows you can’t win a game on your own. He loves the feeling of being on the ice and when you score and the fans go crazy- there is nothing like it. Whenever he steps on the ice with fans cheering he always tells himself to put on a show. A thing Josh does before a game is tape his stick and writes the name of a special person under the tape for good luck. Josh always feels lucky to be stepping onto the ice because he never knows when it’s his last time. He is always grateful. Josh expects to play through college.
