huge congratulation goes out to Jason
Posner as he notches the Florida Eels 3rd college commitment
this season. This is especially impressive as Jason is only a 1997 DOB. He is
no doubt one of the Florida Eels top academic students and was accepted by some
of the top schools in the USA: Boston College. Now that says something. He was
accepted to some of the leading colleges and universities in the USA but Boston
College was where his heart is. He will be studying physics and what better
academic school for that than Boston College. As a student of advanced science
he will have a full load on the academic side so he intelligently and prudently
decided to marshal his time and selected a solid ACHA Hockey program to
accommodate the demands of his studies. Jason
is now one of three Eels alumni who went on to study and play ice hockey at
Boston College. The first was Malcolm Lyles who played for BC’s NCAA Division 1
college hockey team for two years 2008-09 and 2009-10 before transferring over
the NCAA U Mass Lowell. The 2nd Eels alumni was in Max Mastrella who like Jason had a tough academic load and
played for Boston College ACHA College club team.

Scarpaci. He has tremendous passion and is a very most dedicated and determined
young man. He would come to practice early each day by one hour or better to
work on his game. He has great vision on the ice. He plays a hybrid style. He tracks
the puck and shooters very well. He is
an aggressive goalie who Attacks shooters. He has outstanding rebound control.
He has an extremely quick glove that frustrates so many shooters. He is calm
and never gets rattled or shaken up. Premier Head Coach Frankie Scarpaci said
Jason played phenomenal in net for the Eels USP3 team this past season. He
earned 3 shutouts during the regular season. He and fellow netminder, Nick
Kotz, backboned their team into the playoffs says Premier Head Coach Frankie
Scarpaci. This was a huge accomplishment
as the Eels USP3 team had 18 rookies and Jason always came up with those saves
to give his team a chance to win. We
trust he will also rise to the top at Boston College’s ACHA team. The quality
of players in that league is phenomenal. He will thrive there. Jason
is a high character young man. He will fit so well at Boston College and their
excellence in their tradition. Jason comes from an incredible family that has
supported him in every aspect of his life including hockey. Despite playing in
Florida, his parents made many games and were there on all of the away
showcases. They are now must be elated
at seeing their son Jason realize his dreams.
The Eels are honored that Jason was with us last year. Moreover we are
very proud to have helped him reach his goals. That is what we do. Advance our
players to college. Jason marks 197 players the Eels advanced to college.

proud in his endeavors and studies at Boston College.
