Aaron Booth

by Coach Elliott on January 20, 2011

Aaron Booth came to the Wildcats hockey program for the start of his sophomore season in 2008-09.  His older brother Cody had just completed his senior season as part of the 2007-08 Wildcats that went 30-4, won the Northwest Hockey Conference and finished district runner-up. Aaron didn’t have to look too far to see how special playing for the Wildcats could be.

During his 1st season Aaron helped the Cats in what seemed like a rebuilding season. The Cats has just replaced long time coach Jim Cooper and lost 12 seniors that accounted for 116 goals the year before.  Aaron along with his teammates struggled out of the gates but found their legs down the stretch to finish 2nd in the league and played in the district finals. Aaron scored the game-winning overtime goal versus Findlay in the district semi-finals as part of his 6 goals and 11 point season.

Last year, with a year under his belt, Aaron led the Cats in both goals with 21 and points. His knack for finding the net helped to propel the Cats all the way to the state championship game. He was awarded honorable mention all-league after posting 5 league goals in helping the Cats finish 2nd in the league. His highlight reel goal versus St. Francis helped to knock off the then #1 state ranked and undefeated Knights in a shootout.

This year Aaron is once again 1 of the leading goal scorers for the Cats. His presence along with line mattes Nolan Culver and Sophomore Drew Crandall form 1 of the top lines in the state.  He has contributed 9 goals thus far for the Cats, and his play has helped Northview get off to an 11-6-2 overall record and in a tie with St. Francis at 4-1 in the league. This weekend Aaron and the Cats head to Pittsburgh for the Bethel Park MLK tournament. The Cats will once again count on their go to goal scorer as they make the stretch run for a league title and a possible return to the state frozen four. Good luck Aaron on the rest of your Senior season and Congratulations!!!
