            Matt Manzella

            Being part of the hockey team gave Matt Manzella '18, '20G an immediate family and a home on campus.

            "There's no place quite like home, and home is where your family is — from going to war together out on the ice, laughing and singing in the locker room, training in the gym, banged up in the training room, or just hanging out around school, there's nothing in this world like being 'home' with your teammates. Every adversity faced is an opportunity to learn, grow, and ultimately improve. There's nothing like going to battle with all your brothers, putting your body on the line night in and night out for your team."
