Well the first week here at Fredonia is over and it is time for week two to start. The first week went by very fast and the work has already began to pile up. Since they are mostly second and third year classes for me, syllabus week didn't go quite as easily as last year. The freshmen this year are great so far. I could tell like I was the first year, they were a little hesitant at first. Although this was true at first they have all seem to come around and are starting to embrace the Fredonia atmosphere.
Now that the week is over its time to buckle down and get into things. Skates are going to start heating up as hitting comes into the equation from this week out. Luckily for me, all I need to do is stop the puck and don’t need to worry about getting hit. Sounds pretty easy, right? It looks like this year most people have come back in even better shape, which is great because to me that just shows me that the boys are ready to work that much harder this year because they want to be that much more successful. It’s going to be Captain, Cory Melkert leading the charge this year and I couldn't be happier with that. With all the hard work that everyone has put in over the summer, Cory is the right person that is going to make sure that the boys don’t lose that over the year.
Our team made some goals at the end of the season, reachable goals. It’s time to get down to business and this week will be the beginning of it. Everyone is fairly settled in now and there is no time for excuses. It’s time to push each other to be better and we will. I don’t think the guys want a first round exit this year in the playoffs and we are going to just see what we can do about that.
Until next time, Go Devils Go and keep it classy.
