For those ten seniors on Miami's Hockey team, it's nearly the time to shut one episode of their lives, and also to begin with a brand new one. From their last home game of the regular season on this Friday, these senior players will be honored for the success they have achieved during their careers in Miami hockey. These seniors have participated in two Frozen Fours and they also have won two CCHA titles during their time in Miami Hockey. This also includes being a member of Miami's very first Mason Cup win.
The graduation of those senior players may have a great influence on the Brotherhood. Enrico Blasi, coach and the junior class too express their personal feelings about a few of the great times as well as customs that these senior players have got for the team.
Reilly Smith says that, " The ten seniors graduating have promoted and carried out the values of The Brotherhood on a daily basis since they first stepped foot on campus. Unfortunately, we can't replace them, so it will be our duty to teach these beliefs to the incoming freshmen to carry on the legacy”
They (seniors) have become heroes in different facets of life. Steve Mason describes it saying, "I have learned how to act professionally in certain situations. They know when it's time to be social and when to get to business, which is an attitude I will continue. Just watching how each of them holds themselves and how they act in different situations, like getting ready before a game or their attitude in a class, has helped me realize what it is to be a student-athlete.”
