Drew Crandall Competes in EJHL summer showcase

Pictured above is #14 Yellow Drew Crandall.  The Sylvania Northview High School forward only recently closed out his sophomore season, with the Wild Cat's.  Receiving an invitation to compete with one of the top teams in the EJHL ( Eastern Junior Hockey League), the New Hampshire Jr Monarchs.  Truth be told since 2002 the Monarchs have won 6 Titles with two sets of back to back championships.  The New Hampshire Monarchs are noted for their annual placement of players in Division 1 NCAA hockey.  Team like Boston University, Boston College, North Eastern, Maine, and University of New Hampshire and any combination of Atlantic, ECAC schools are common place.  Drew was playing this weekend with a proverbially who's who, of who's to come in college hockey, ranging in age from 17-20.  In front of a vast majority of Atlantic, ECAC and Hockey East Divison 1 coaches, and 25+ Division 3 schools.
Drew is one of those players with the gift, and is up for the challenge.  He is relentless at both ends of the ice, posses the speed, hands and vision, to not only compete at these elite levels, but to excel.  Drew plays a complete game and is fearless.  His success this weekend as well as at previous events, and those to come over the summer are preparing him for a very challenging season of High School Hockey, and aiding him in making future plans.
Head coach Mike Jones of the Wild Cats, is going to continue developing eliet players, and challanging each and every boy to not only the best hockey player he can be, but student.  His methodologies and formulas are proving out.  It's not just where you play hockey that counts in development, it is who you play for, and what kind of development plan is in place that matters most.  Players learn the most, in practice.  Player grow physically from highly advanced modern conditioning programs.  Players thrive in a culture based upon support, success and camaraderie, while maintain great social lives and being surrounded by friends, family and fans. This is Northview Hockey, this is Northwest Ohio High School Hockey.
Drews games can be viewed on by looking in the archive section for the EJHL Summer showcase.  Drew played for the Monarchs White team in the A division, jersey color is Yellow in each game, and he wore the #14.
