Trevor Jewell wears many hats for the Carolina Premier Hockey. One thing he is proud to do is coach the 2008 group for CPH this season. He gave some thoughts on the group and what they are looking to do this season.
“They are a resilient group. A really fun group. I honestly have a blast coaching them. The potential in that team is through the roof, being able to help them in their development on and off the ice is a pleasure. To help them potentially wear a Rush uniform someday or levels even higher is exactly what we want to do.
We have had a tough start to this season, playing some really good teams. But we are really close to winning those games, our compete level is second to none and each player brings something different to the table that helps the team succeed. We have our work cut our for us as our schedule get harder as we move forward, but I really believe in this group and think we can do something special. Our goal is to qualify for Nationals and see what kind of damage we may be able to do there.
The captains are all vital parts of the 08′ group. Tristan Mcauliffe is a speedy forward that scored timely goals and is great defensively. He is a player who leads in and off the ice and guys look up to. Greg Kasza is a physical forward who creates space for his teammates and has a great pulse on the room, players go to him for almost everything. Luke Schairer is one heck of a hockey player, he plays in every situation and plays huge minutes. He leads our D core and is a complete game changer, he leads by example and other players follow suit. Cade Kinnear is our best leader on and off the ice. He is a crafty forward that never stops working to be better. Players look up to him and respond to everything he says and does. He is the heartbeat of the team.
Honoring them was special to the Rush as they look up to a lot of these players. Most of them being the younger billet brothers of Rush players. They are the next wave of Charlotte born players to come up through the ranks and potential wear a Rush uniform. They are family and their support means everything. Having them in the building to see what it takes to get to the next level is huge for them and their success this season and in the future.”
