What do you want to celebrate about your athlete?

Joshua never gave up. He knows what his future goals are and will not stop until he achieves them. This opportunity to play with this junior team is one of the many goals I know he will accomplish. He has played only lower levels in hockey due mostly to our financial situation. But he ran into the right coach who put him on the path to get signed by the Avalanche.

"We would are so proud of him, how he never stopped trying to better himself, and his hockey skills."

- Mom

What life skills do you see your athlete learning through sports?

I believe last season taught him the most. He was the captain of his team and had to take on a new role. I saw him grow so much with his compassion and strength to cheer on his teammates and to be there for them when they needed it. He is a born leader and an amazing teammate.

What is a character trait your Athlete has that you adore?

In just one word, humble. The best for me was when he went back and thanked his previous team and owner for bringing him to where he is today. Also, how he thanked his stepdad and me for always being there to support him.

Besides sports, what does your Athlete aspire to be?

My son’s future goal is to be an engineer.

Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know.

I want my athlete to know how much we love him. We will always be his biggest fans!
