Jonah Carrier has already made a strong statement about his last year with the Eagles. In his fourth year on the Varsity, with a career 75% win percentage at the faceoff "X", and 82 points, he had started this year with 118 faceoff wins (84%) and 16g-7a. Last week he had 17 faceoff wins (100%) in the Schroeder win,6 wins (60%) in the Ithaca win and 12 wins (86%) in the Penfield win, where the University of Maryland recruit scored the game-winning overtime goal.

Head Coach Aaron Bottazzo says, "Jonah is off to a great start. He has had a great work ethic from the off-season to now and is also stepping up in a big way as a team leader, which has been a key component to the team's progression early in the season. The most impressive part is the fact that Jonah is not only a great kid but a great teammate. It's a pleasure to be able to coach him and he is a great example for any of the other athletes in our program to look up to and understand what the standard is in which we want to play and carry ourselves!"
