12 Esmark Stars Players Honored

The North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) has announced its All-Academic Teams in the 15U, 16U and 18U divisions for the 2016-17 season.

Consideration and selection was based on classroom performance during the 2016-17 school year. To qualify for the All-NAPHL Academic Team, student-athletes, nominated by a coach,  must have achieved certain academic standards during the current school year.

(All-Academic Selection was limited to four maximum per team.)

Esmark Stars AAA players recognized as NAPHL Academic All-Stars for the 2016-17 school year, include:

U15 - Matthew Marquis, Lane Ruffner, Michael Page, Paul Zmuda

U16 - Christian Gorscak, Ryan Hastings, Nico Pidro, Adam Ulan

U18 - Michael Lamison, Mitchell Lewis, Patrick Roach and Boston Bradley

"We are very proud of the players selected as Academic All-Stars," said Stars 18U Head Coach and program General Manager Dave Kosick. "The time and dedication to be a high-end Tier I AAA player while maintaining superior excellence in the classroom is to be applauded."

The Esmark program submitted lists of names that far exceeded the maximum of four allowed per member program at each level.

"Whether you made the All-Academic Team or not, we salute and congratulate all of our student athletes who maintain academic excellence ... without seeking special exemption from the day-to-day requirements ... all while managing the rigors of playing elite travel hockey," Kosick added.
