"We were real close as a team and that is happening again. We need to pick it up and hopefully we'll have another winning season."
What or who got you interested in hockey?
"My dad (Jeff) always watched the Penguins on TV when I was young and he got me involved in Dek Hockey and I loved it."
What is something people don't know about you?
"I like to fish. I fish a lot in the Loyalhanna Creek for trout and smallmouth bass. I like being in the outdoors. It allows me to be myself and not worry about anything."
What advice would you give classmate Natalie Bower as she prepares for the PIAA Class AAA cross country championships?

Look out for
Latrobe hockey team
With 15 seniors returning from last year's Penguins Cup and state championship team, the Latrobe hockey team looks for another great season in Class AA.
Latrobe (1-0) opened the season with a 7-1 victory over Elizabeth Forward. JeffJoe Regula scored a hat trick.
Regula, Kevin McCurdy and Ryan LaDuke, who missed last year with an injury, are some of the top scorers on the squad. Brody Aukerman is the team's top defenseman, while goaltender Nick Loyacona returns.
Latrobe plays South Park at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Castle Shannon.
"They beat us twice last year," Regula said. "We have a little revenge on our minds. We have a ton of players who are back."
