Walpole, MA – The Walpole Express are proud to announce the commitment of Hunter Phillips to Becker College. Hunter is in his third year with the Express, two in the EHL and one in the EHLP. Becker is located in Worcester, MA and the Hawks play in the CCC.
Phillips spoke about why he made the decision to commit to Becker. “Becker was the right fit for me academically because of the smaller class setting, where I feel that I will be able to get the most out of my education,” said Phillips. “As for being an athlete, I’m excited to be a part of a team on the rise. Playing under head coach Mike Young with the way he coaches and what he wants in a player, along with the competitive conference they play in make it a perfect fit for me.“
Express Coach Cody Campbell spoke about how Phillips has been a big producer for the Express, ”Hunter has been instrumental to our groups success this season. He has centered our most productive offensive line all year and has really turned into a 200 foot center who is great on face-offs,” said Campbell. “Off the ice we can always rely on Hunter to keep guys positive and cheer someone up that needs it. Becker is getting a dynamic player and someone that is going to make the entire campus more lively and we could not be more proud from Hunter earning this opportunity.”
”Playing for the Express has helped me reach my goal because of how close the team is and how every single one of us has bought in to the culture brought here by Coach Campbell. Everyone is on the same page and looks forward to coming to the rink day in and day out,” said Phillips. “I’d like to thank all my friends and family who have helped me along the way, as well as the Walpole Express these past three years.”
Please join the entire Express Organization in congratulating Hunter on his NCAA College Commitment.
