George Panutsos, Niles West High School

“When I was twelve years old and went to go play on a hockey team, that was probably too good for me to be on, and I was the youngest player on the team. I had this coach, that, every practice, would skate the s*** out of us. He would put a garbage bag on the ice, and tell us, ‘If you can’t handle it, throw up.’ During that season, I really hated that coach, but looking back on it, he’s made me the player that I am today, and I have to thank him for all of my perseverance and my motivation to keep going. To be able to find that extra gear in overtime to be able to just keep going and keep pushing, in order to make yourself that much better than everyone else.”
