Hunter Cunningham Chosen to Lead the Trojans Next Season
by posted 03/24/2019


McDowell Hockey would like to announce the appointment of Hunter Cunningham as Varsity Head Coach for the upcoming 2019-2020 season. Coach Cunningham started with the club in 2017 as an Assistant Coach on our Junior Varsity team. Upon his hire, he immediately became an integral piece of the puzzle in the Trojans’ rebuilding efforts with player recruitment, selection and development. This season, Cunningham stepped into a more prominent role with the program as the Head Coach for the JV and tournament teams and an Assistant with the Varsity squad. While his concentration was initially on the offensive side of the puck and fundamental skill development, Coach Cunningham's selection as Varsity Head Coach will enable him to prioritize the progression of our players from the more developmental side of middle school and JV to the more competitive Varsity level. Varsity Captain Dominick Bartell had this to say recently about Coach Cunningham; "He is one of the best coaches I have had in my hockey career. He has so much knowledge of the game and he is willing to share and teach that to all of his players. He worked with me a lot these two seasons and has made me a better player and person, on and off the ice." 

When outlining his outlook for the future, Coach Cunningham was clear:

"My goal is to be lucky enough to coach kids for 7 years - they get here as a 6th grader on our middle school team and leave here competing at the highest interscholastic level for their school as a senior. To have the chance to work with kids over that period of time and really impact their game and their development as a player - that's the goal. We have a strong nucleus of kids that started with this high school team two years ago. They put playing for their school as a priority. We see our middle school players moving up with the same mindset and the same intensity. That's what we want and we are all working to build a program they can be proud to represent." 

Skill development of our younger players will fall on Coach Sean Perhacs going forward as he assumes the head coaching responsibilities for our JV team. Coach Perhacs has lead our rebuilding efforts over these last three years, coming in at the end of the 2016-2017 season and helping with our Middle School team before taking over the JV team in 2017-2018 and leading them to a 25-5-2 inaugural record. His efforts culminated this season when a McDowell Varsity team took to the PIHL ice for the first time in more than 5 years. Under Coach Cunningham's direction, Coach Perhacs will work with our Middle School coaches to ensure that players are trained and developed to succeed at the high school level and will then be charged with guiding them through the transition from middle school to Junior Varsity competition. 

McDowell Hockey alum Todd Redmond will provide the unifying factor between the two high school teams with a position as an Assistant Coach on both the Junior Varsity and Varsity teams for next season. Coach Redmond played for McDowell in high school and has coached at the travel level, most recently with the Erie Lions 16U team. Redmond joined the Trojans this season as an Assistant on Coach Cunninham's JV team where he was integral in the development of the team's young talent. 

Tryouts for the McDowell High School team will take place on Sunday, April 14th from 7:30pm-9:00pm at Erie Bank Sports Park. Please email mcdtrojanshockey@gmail.com to get on our mailing list.

ANOTHER SCRAMBLE IN THE BOOKS!

Thank you to all the parents who worked on the event committee and spent their Saturday making sure the day went off without a hitch.  Special thanks to the coaching staff that cooked dogs, delivered beer and rolled up their sleeves to get the job done.
