HYANNIS, MA -- Billy Purdue, a forward for the Total Athletics Seahawks, has committed to Post University for the Fall of 2018. The '97 just finished his first season in the EHL, and he tallied 15 points in 44 total games.
"Our mission is to be an elite stepping stone for players as they make there way to the next level, whatever level may be for each player," said Seahawks head coach and general manager Bill Zaniboni. "Adding our 11th player to NCAA ranks is a testament to the players and what they put into it, but also the program and how these young men prepare on a daily basis. We are excited for Billy and his family and we are happy and honored to have him as an alumni."
This Fall, Purdue will be joined by Harrison Sheldon of the Valley Jr. Warriors, who also recently made his commitment to join the Eagles. The native of Monroeville, PA is looking forward to kicking off this collegiate hockey career at Post, and took some time to give his thanks.
"I am excited to announce my commitment to Post University," said Purdue. "I would like to thank my family for all the support and sacrifice they have made for me to pursue my goals. I would also like to thank the Seahawks coaching staff for teaching me how to play at the next level. I would especially like to thank Coach Zaniboni for teaching me principles that will not only make me successful in hockey, but in life as well. Lastly I would like to thank the Seahawks organization for giving me the opportunity to play for a new franchise and have a great experience doing so."
