'01 - '02 Varsity Ice Hockey Player of the Week
WEEK: December 9 - December 15, 2001
PLAYER: Scott Eberenz
So far, so good for Scott Eberenz; he is doing an
excellent job leading the team in his final year at
The Prep. This week he racked up three goals in
victories over Portledge School and Bergen Catholic.
More great things are expected from the captain, not
only this year, but after graduation as well.
WEEK: December 16 - December 22, 2001
PLAYER: Bryan Haczyk
Welcome to the Pirates, officially, Bryan! He scored
his first goal for The Hall in a 3-3 tie versus Brick.
Bryan is only a freshman, but he shows tremendous
WEEK: December 23 - December 29, 2001
PLAYER: Dustin Kennedy
One player that has really stepped up his game since
last year is Dustin. As a sophomore, he is already
an intrical part of the team, plus as he ages, he will
hone his skills even more.
WEEK: December 30 - January 5, 2002
PLAYER: Jon Manci
Jon Manci is yet another player who has shown
significant improvement since last year. Jon has been
battling hard both in the defensive end, and
especially in the offensive zone. This week against
CBA, Jon scored a pretty goal to boost the team
morale. As the days go by, it is certain that
Jon will continue to be productive for the Pirates.
WEEK: January 6 - January 12, 2002
PLAYER: Ryan Collis
Proving that he is a go-to guy on this team, Ryan
scored two big goals, including the game winner,
against St. Joe's Metuchen. He should continue to
up his level of gameplay as the year progresses.
WEEK: January 13 - January 19, 2002
PLAYER: Paul Alexandrov
Paul deserves this award because he has earned a
spot as one of the team's two starting defensemen.
This proves that hard work does pay off, and Paul
continues to lead by example.
WEEK: January 20 - January 26, 2002
PLAYER: Mike Attanasio
Mike may not possess the greatest hockey skills in the
world, but he is a coach's dream. He is one of the
most dedicated players on the squad, even though he
doesn't get a chance to prove it on one of the top
lines. Nevertheless, Mike stares adversity right in
the face and he keeps plugging away everyday.
WEEK: January 27 - February 2, 2002
PLAYER: Jason DelPiano
Jason is one senior is going to be thoroughly missed
after he graduates. He is one of the hardest workers
on the team, and no matter what the task is, big or
small, he does not let his pride get in the way.
WEEK: February 3 - February 9, 2002
PLAYER: Dan Galorenzo
This week the award goes to someone who is not a
member of the hockey team, instead he is a Seton Hall
Prep wrestler. Dan Galorenzo, a junior, passed away
late Thursday night/early Friday morning due to an
aneurysm in his chest. G-Man, the nickname given to
him by his friends at school, will be sorely missed.
It's a shame that an innocent life, such as Dan's, was
taken from this earth, but it must have been part of a
larger plan. Dan was honored at this Saturday's home
game versus Delbarton. The school headmaster,
Monsignor Michael Kelly, said a prayer for Dan before
the opening faceoff, and the students wore white
shirts that read "G-Man 103" in remembrance of Dan and
his wrestling weight group.
WEEK: February 10 - February 16, 2002
PLAYER: Brian Liguori
Brian Liguori has filled in nicely playing as the
starting goalie in his last year at Seton Hall Prep.
He didn't have much of a chance to prove himself in
the past, but this year he has made his efforts
worthwhile. This week's award is well-deserved by
WEEK: February 17 - February 23, 2002
PLAYER: Mike Maglio
Often playing on the fourth line, Mike Maglio has not
been given much of an opportunity to produce until
recently. He is yet another hard worker on the team,
and since this is his last year at The Prep, he wants
to make the most of it on and off the ice. This week
against Brick in the Gordon Cup Semifinals, Mike
recorded an assist; it was a rare point for Mike, but
a well-deserved point nonetheless.
WEEK: February 24 - March 2, 2002
PLAYER: Joe Campagna
Joe made the transition from playing as a forward last
season to a defenseman this season.
Forwards are supposed to be the
offensive leaders on a team, therefore switching from
an offensive-minded player to a defensive one is not
easy, but Joe does not complain, he merely does his
job and he does it well.
WEEK: March 3 - March 9, 2002
PLAYER: Adam Haczyk
Adam Haczyk's hard work paid off this week as he was
promoted to a starting defenseman, and against Bergen
Catholic in the semifinals of the state tournament,
he recorded a wicked goal. Way to go, Adam!
WEEK: March 10 - March 16, 2002
PLAYER: Anthony Ferri
This year's squad was very young, therefore the
younger players had to step up, especially freshmen
like Anthony Ferri. Ferri scored the lone goal for
The Hall against Delbarton in the Parochial Finals.
Along with the other freshmen, Anthony will only get
better as the years progress.
