Can I get an Amen…..

by admin on February 27, 2008

That is what many coaches around the Northwest Hockey Conference have been asking for years. Can I get an Eamonn Reynolds to be exact? A four year member of the varsity program, Eamonn has become one of the steadiest defensemen in the league and ranks with the greatest players to ever play the position at Northview.

Eamonn came to Northview at the start of his freshmen year. He had hoped to get a chance to play with his friend and neighbor Kyle Garris, a senior on the 2005 squad. Immediately, Eamonn was able to show the sound defensive skills that would keep him in the lineup for years to come. From the first moment he set foot on the ice his poise and maturity helped build his team into champions. He along with Craig Trego and his stable mate on the blue line, Tyler Puhl, are the four year letter winners who have led the Cats to the most wins in any consecutive four year stretch in team history. Eamonn has done it with out earning the accolades of all-league voting that many feel he deserved. Eamonn exudes every positive quality you look for in a hockey player, a leader and a maturing young man. He is loyal, consistent, trustworthy and Team Oriented. Those qualities will make him successful in anything he chooses to do in life.

On a personal note, it has been a pleasure to be his coach and mentor, and his departure will leave a void in our team and my heart that will be irreplaceable. As he helps lead his team into their last weeks of high school hockey, we wish him good luck and know he will leave his heart and soul on the ice for his friends and his school. Thank God he ended up as a Wildcat. Can I get an Amen to that?

Congratulations Eamonn on an unbelievable career, and good luck in the rest of the State Playoffs!
