'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 potential!

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 Brian.

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.
