Bobcat forward is eighth NCAA commitment from 2014-15 club
EAST MEADOW, New York – The New York Bobcats are proud to announce that forward Sean Gargin has committed to play and attend school at Franklin Pierce University beginning in the fall of 2015.
Gargin, ‘94, is the eighth Bobcat to make a NCAA commitment from the 2014-15 team.
“Coach [Craig] Doremus was speaking to other schools for me but I spoke to one of the kids on the team at Franklin Pierce and asked him for the coaches number. I gave him a call and he wanted to speak to [Craig] and within the hour after that I was committed to the school,” said Gargin. “Coach Doremus spoke very highly of me to the coach and it really helped my chances of me playing college hockey there.”
Gargin played in the final four games for the Bobcats this season after rejoining the team late in the year. He put up one goal and two assists for three points before the playoffs.
“The coach at Franklin Pierce told me that he wanted a guy like me because of the work ethic I have and how I present myself on and off the ice,” added Gargin.
The Staten Island, NY native was tied for the team lead for points in the playoffs with four, registering two goals and two helpers.
“I would like to thank the staff of the New York Bobcats and especially Coach Doremus for taking me back so late in the season. I would do anything for those guys over there and I’m sure they would do the same for me. I am extremely blessed to have been a part of that organization,” added Gargin. “It is a first class organization and if you get an opportunity to play there you are one of the luckiest players to have the ability to play there. It was a privilege to be apart of the Bobcats organization and I wouldn’t have wanted to end my junior hockey career with any other team. “
Gargin ended his Bobcat career with 49 games played, 10 goals, 15 assists and 25 points.
“We are extremely happy and proud of Sean on his commitment to Franklin Pierce. I have known Sean for quite some years now having had the privilege of coaching him with the Metro Moose. I would describe Sean as a culture changing kid. He helped transform our team from the time he joined it. Sean’s ability to lead is a bit old school. He does everything the right way. Never takes the easy way out,” said Doremus. “If I had to say one thing about Sean it would be that I would take him on any team that I coach. I am so happy he decided to end his junior career in a Bobcats’ sweater. My only wish is that he played with us all season long. Franklin Pierce is getting an absolute steal with this kid. I look forward to watching Sean continue his career there.”
The New York Bobcats wish Sean and his family all the best on this wonderful accomplishment.
