My grandson Drew. I watched this guy from the day he was born until he started school; I was honored to be given that opportunity to do so. Drew is maturing into a fine respectful young man, he makes me very proud to be a part of his life.
Keep up the good work buddy; someday we will read your name on the sports page.
Is he trying for a scholarship or a career in ice hockey?
My grand daughter is heavy into volleyball and at 5'11" she is making a name for herself with her spike and kill shots. Things are a lot different in high school now than when I or my kids were kids. These days at Ally's age (17) volleyball is treated very much as a pro sport. Games have her traveling all over the U.S. and, of course, my daughter an her husband foot the bill for it all.
She is hoping for a scholarship, but is not supposed to be scouted until her senior year (wink-wink).
We are not allowed to personaly go into the gym, but the games are televised (for a fee, of course).
Frank, Drew is 10, a straight A student and a wonderful boy, very polite and respectful of his elders. Right now hockey teams and coaches are talking to him encouraging him to go further. A semi-pro hockey coach is working with him after he watched him at a game which his parents are paying for of course once a week, the coach is from Philly and drives up to Allentown to work with Drew. He loves the sport and is on the ice a minimum of five days a week. Drew impresses me; he has no fear of that puck coming at him at blinding speeds. I hope he pursues it further, as for right now this is his passion, he has my support.
