Florida Eels over 317 players advanced to college
The Florida Eels are so excited to announce that Joe McCormick has committed to McKendree University in Lebanon, Illinois. it is the oldest college or university in Illinois Joe took enormous time to find the right academic and hockey program that would fit his interest and met with the standards he was demanding. He had a good number of choices from the Midwest, the Penn/Ny Area and New England. We are thrilled for Joe
This is a hard working young man.Very good skill .and a catalyst and spark plug for the Eels this season. He played a key role in the Eels Premier team’s success in winning the tough Florida Division, sweeping the playoffs and advancing to Nationals and making it to the Semi Finals.
There is no doubt the coaches at McKendree saw what McCormick can deliver day in and day out. He is a relentless fore-checker who wears down opponents and forces turnovers. His ability to capture turn overs is equally impressive. He knows his defensive role and shuts teams down in the defensive zone. In the second half of the season Joe found the net and showed scouts he can burn opposing goalies
McCormick joins teammate Trevor Voyda from this season’s Eels squad. Trevor was one of the Eels top defensemen this season.
Joe is the Eels 15th player from the Eels who has committed to college this season. That is amazing. He is also the Eels 317th player over all to advance. This is the most important element for the Eels accomplishments.
Joe is a first class individual. Impeccable character. Plays with enormous passion. He will do extremely well at McKendree We are proud of Joe and wish him the very best.
