Walpole, MA — The Walpole Express are proud to announce the commitment of Anthony Persi to Castleton University. Located in Castleton, VT, the Spartans play in the New England Hockey Conference.
An assistant captain this year, Anthony is in his second season with the Express.
On joining the Spartans this fall, “I really liked the atmosphere around campus. It was important to find a team that had a good culture in the locker room along with a coaching staff that has the desire to win night in and night out. Equally important was to find a school with a solid academic background in my desired major.”
“I have really enjoyed working with Anthony for the past two years,” said Coach Josh Holmstrom. “His habits every single day set the bar for the rest of our team. He earned a call up to the NAHL earlier this season because he plays the game the right way. He plays in every scenario for us and I am extremely excited for him to have earned this opportunity with Castleton.
When asked about his experience in Walpole Anthony said, “Playing in Walpole has helped in a number of ways. Coach Holmstrom holds all of us to a standard every day that makes us better hockey players and better men overall. Walpole has taught me a number of life lessons that I don’t think you would get anywhere else. Lastly, my teammates around me have helped so much along the way to make me a better player, and making it fun to see them every single day.”
The organization would like to congratulate Anthony Persi on his NCAA college commitment.
