JV gone D-1

Post by LetsPlayHockey22 » Mon Jan 28, 2008 4:59 am

Just wondering because usually JV players are second fiddle...Has there ever been a player that played full JV as a sophomore or as a junior, then peaked Junior or senior year and gone on to D-1?

Many of them. One that comes to mind is Dave Holum of GR, made the leap by senior year to full ride at St. Cloud St., then a brief career in minor league professional hockey.

I might be wrong but if I remember correct, Mark Parrish might have played JV as a sophomore on the great Jefferson teams of the early "90's?

Andy Welinski at Duluth East played JV almost the entire year last year as a soph, being called up just before tournament time. Tried out for the National Development U17 team and made it and will be going to UMD. He's got one of the best shots in HS. Not all JV are "second fiddle", sometimes it depends on the numbers in front of you. Getting told you're "second fiddle", and trust me your kid knows you feel that way, is a shame. Be patient and they might have a great HS experience.

There are great players in the JV and Jr Gold ranks who are where they are because of a bad tryout or politics or whatever. I think a kid who breaks out of JV or JR Gold is going to be more hungry for success than a kid who has a certain reputation that always lands him or her on the A or Varsity team.

I think the challenge is for the kids to keep a good attitude and keep working hard and not worry about things they cannot control.

Paul Ranheim from Edina class of 84 played jv as a 10th grader. Full ride to Wisconson then on to the NHL for like a 15 year carrear. And the gophers did'nt even talk to him.

Do most of the super stars play varsity as 9th graders?

In some cases yes. It depends where you are. In some of the more rural towns, there are a mixture of good players and players that just fill out the roster. When you get to the Suburban privates, most of the players are good, some get by as average. Depth is the biggest issue with that. In general i would say 15% of the freshman varsity players end up being a star. imho

No. He played varsity as a soph at LN.

What about any players played JV at junior year and ended up with a hockey future?

If you are a junior on JV at a big school your future is Jr Gold A as a senior :D

Ben Dexheimer at Edina played JV last year and is commited to Miami Ohio. Pretty sure I heard he’s headed to Blake this year. Kid is smart on the ice, a bit undersized. Good overall hockey IQ. Saw him a few times last year. Ran into a heavy Edina varsity D core last year.
