Captain Kyler Omey would give his Left eye for his Teammates!!

by Coach Elliott on March 5, 2012

That’s saying something for a kid who is legally blind in his Right eye! Joking aside when you think of a consummate professional, a person who would put the good of his team 1st and his own well being and personal accolades last look no further than Kyler.  Its the reason he was chosen captain of the 2011-12 team and was given  an alternate captain on the 2010-11 team. Kyler is not a player who stands out on a score sheet. He will not dazzle you with his tremendous skills, but at the end of a game players and coaches of opposing teams will tell you what a pain in the butt he is. It’s why recently even though he didn’t register a single point in league play he was selected to the 1st team in the NHC red division for defense.

Kyler came to the Cats for the start of his sophomore season. Part of a solid group of defenseman, Kyler never complained when early on that season his playing time was low. From the beginning it was never what was owed to him or any sense of entitlement.  It was always what he could do to get better and to help make his team better. By the time mid-season of that sophomore season had rolled around Kyler was earning his minutes and making his team better. The Cats went to the state final game that year and Kyler along with blue line partner Graham Kelsey made up 1 of the top defensive pair in the state. Last year Kyler continued his strong play while helping to lead the Cats to a 2nd place finish in the regular season before capturing the league playoff tournament championship. However a loss in the district semi-finals kept the Cats from a return trip to states. This year Kyler wants more from his team and so far they have delivered. After capturing league and playoff championships in the NHC along with 3 other tournaments the 28-1-3 Cats sit 1 game away from a return trip to Columbus and the state Frozen Four! For that dream to become a reality it will take #4 patrolling the blue line and shutting down the opponents top players.

Congratulations Kyler on doing it the right way. Your morals and team oriented beliefs will help make you a success in all that you do. Good luck on the rest of your senior season and good luck Wildcats!!!!
