Yorktown rising senior goaltender Derek Koelsch,
who performed well in several summer showcase events,
has committed to Trinity in Hartford, Conn.
The recruiting commitments continue to come in on a daily basis, folks.
Just moments ago, one of the top rising senior goaltenders in the region, Yorktown’s Derek Koelsch, committed to attend Trinity College, an elite Division III program both academically and athletically.
Be sure to read Derek’s thoughts on the jump.
Here’s a Q&A I did with Derek about his selection and his thoughts on the recruiting process:
I visited Trinity on July 17 with my parents. I made a great connection with Coach (James) Finlay. He opened up his entire day for me and we spent about four hours talking and touring the campus.
Colby, SUNY Geneseo and Tufts.
The campus was beautiful and I was drawn to the NESCAC league because of the great competition. I liked Coach Finlay’s honesty and openness. He focuses on a strong defense and coming from a program like Brown, he knows what it takes to win.
I have been lifting every day at Club Fit with some of my teammates. Also, I have been lucky enough to have some great alumni and current players around to shoot on me almost every day (including Rocky Bonitatibus, Joey Porcelli, John Ranagan, Remy Lieberman and Jack Farrell). I played for the Yorktown Ballers and the Hudson Valley team (in the Nike New York State Shootout).
