ASTON, PA -- Cale Coor, a defenseman for the Philadelphia Little Flyers, has committed to Southern New Hampshire University for the Fall of 2018. The '97 is in his second season with the Little Flyers, and has tallied nine points in his first 18 games this season.
“Getting to know the staff at SNHU over the past two seasons, I can tell they are putting a plan in place for the future of the team and I’m excited that Cale is going to be a part of that," said Little Flyers head coach and general manager George Lewis. "We are all very proud of Cale for making his college commitment, it is much deserved, and we all know he will do an excellent job. For me personally, Cale being a returner who I’ve spent a lot of time with and the first commitment we’ve had as a new staff, so this one is a little extra special, we couldn’t be any prouder of him. Cale has taken on a much larger role this season as a leader and as a guy we lean on to play critical minutes and produce. We’re thrilled with the way he has progressed, and we know he’ll continue to move in the right direction to not only help us with our goal of winning a Championship, but to be totally prepared when he steps on SNHU’s campus next Fall.”
As Lewis mentioned, Coor is the first commit of the season for the Little Flyers. The native of Texas felt there was no need to let things drag out, and now is committed still relatively early on in the EHL season. The talented defenseman took some time to reflect on his decision.
“I’d first like to thank my family for giving me the opportunity to play hockey. None of this would be possible without them, and they supported me all throughout my hockey career. I’d also like to thank all of my coaches that helped me while growing up in Dallas and taught me much of what I know about hockey. I would like to thank Coach Russo and Coach Lewis for giving me the opportunity to play for such an amazing junior organization the last two seasons. They pushed me to become a better player and helped me learn what I needed to play at the next level. Another thank you goes out to the Giacobbo family and the entire Little Flyers organization for building a top-of-line team and supporting me in my junior hockey career. Lastly, I would like to thank Coach Walsh and Coach Rowe for giving me this amazing opportunity to play college hockey at Southern New Hampshire University. SNHU is a great school that offers an outstanding engineering education and has a hockey team I am proud to be a part of. I am very happy and excited to get on the ice next season to be a part of the Penmen family,” said Coor.
