PF National Champions

Was at a get together today with a few relatives from w mass. Everyone talking about the top team in Mass Prep +HS hockey. Good to see w mass leading the talent pool in mass hockey again. Good work boys. The talk around the fire pi is that the squad may be even deeper this next year. Pretty impressive.

Your get together sounded like a weenie roast.

Re: PF National Champions

Hopefully they’re deeper next year but I don’t think They’ll have a number of this years JV players on the Varsity team.

Re: PF National Champions

Dude...you need to let it go.

Just because you put the word prep in the teams name doesn't make them a prep school.

NEPSAC is prep school hockey.
MIAA is public/catholic school hockey.

We are all so happy your little buddy had a great year and won HS nationals but your insistance that they are a prep school is foolish.

Winning the USA High School Championships is like being the tallest midget in the room

Re: PF National Champions

Will be very different next year. Horses all leaving. With the seniors leaving, RL to USNTDP, and at least 4 other to real prep schools. Foley may retire!

This is mostly accurate, except it's only 3 leaving for prep. 2 were wait listed & likely staying. Team is being gutted - top 6 forwards, 2nd & 3rd best D-men and starting goalie all gone. Not much coming in for reinforcements. And this coming from someone at that same firepit Sat.

Make that 4 leaving - top D-man just got off a wait list.

How many people were at this fire! You guys could have just started a group text, but thanks for sharing. Nobody cares what an MIAA team is doing.

Re: PF National Champions

About 10 years ago my son was looking at Choate Rosemary Hall, and an assistant hockey coach made a memorable comment to us. He said that Choate's JV hockey team could beat the Connecticut state champions from the public school division (Varsity).

A splash of cold water in the face!

Not likely, as any JV prep school team is a "graveyard", do you know what that means? It means if your kid is on a JV prep school team, it means your likely to be on it for four years. Prep school coach's only recruit enough guys who can make it on the Varsity, no more than that. Prep JV teams are generally god awful

Re: PF National Champions

I am aware of this circumstance. Seems pretty clear that Prep coaches do not recruit to fill their JV or thirds teams. There was no such implication in my post or the words of the assistant coach from Choate.

The sad part is that even given the fact that all parties to the conversation that day on the Choate campus were aware of what the JV and thirds teams consist of, that such a thought could enter the assistant coach's mind, and the sentence would pass his lips.

At the time the comment was made, I genuinely believed that the coach meant the words he said!

Re: PF National Champions

Why are so many players leaving PF if it’s a powerhouse? Why leave to play hockey for other teams?

I dont get it. If they are the best “Prep” school, why are kids leaving for other lesser Prep schools? Could it be because it is a MIAA school and not a prep school? Maybe!

Re: PF National Champions

Pretty simple. They are looking for challenges. Been there, done that mentality. Kinda like Brady heading to Tampa Bay. Time to see if they can earn another ring. Yes, a step down in the level of play but nonetheless ,a good challenge.

Cute. More like winning the CFL championship and coming south of the border to test yourself in the nfl. Good luck to all the boys.

Re: PF National Champions

PF = National prep Champs , you need to accept it. Top prep / HS team, period.

Re: PF National Champions

How can you be the top prep team nationally yet lose three times to the same team from your own state ?

Re: PF National Champions

Jerez this is a foolish discussion.

PF is not a prep school. like Austin prep or St. John’s prep are not prep schools even though the word “prep” is actually in their names. They are not in the ISL, holt, lakes, etc.and are not an independent like the actual prep school that beat them 3x this year. They do not compete in the Nepsac playoffs in any of the three divisions instead the play in the miaa playoffs with public schools and other catholic schools. That is all.
