ARMY'S NEW CADET
“I couldn’t be happier for Andrew and his family on his commitment to Army West Point,” head coach Mike Letizia said. “He is an outstanding hockey player, but more importantly a fantastic person. He has a great attitude every day and is such a low maintenance person to coach, never asks for anything special, just comes to the rink every day and gets to work. There is a certain level of standard that the staff at West Point likely holds their recruits to, and Andrew checks those boxes on and off the ice.”
It takes a special person to commit to West Point. And Andrew Quetell is that special person. The Cleveland native entered his second season with the Tomahawks looking for an NCAA commitment. And, on October 11, the 19-year-old defenseman signed on the dotted line to join the United States Military Academy.
It's a huge honor not only to be a part of such an historic school but the Army and everything that comes with it," Quetell said in an October interview with the Tribune-Democrat. "You look at people who have served. They're very passionate about their country and their fellow Americans. It is something that made me feel proud."
The 6-0 blue liner returned to the Tomahawks in mid-September after a brief stint in the United States Hockey League. He was also named to the Tomahawks' leadership core, serving as an assistant captain.
