“I’m not sure what I want to major in, but I’ve been narrowing it down. I have a tutor once a week now to help me get ready to return to the classroom. It has been two years since I’ve been there, and I want to make that transition as easy as possible. Knowing where I’ll be spending the next four years is a big weight off my mind.”
College coaches began talking to Rocheville following the Rangers first showcase when he posted a shutout. At Fenwick he broke the school record for most shutouts (with seven) and recorded a 1.62 GAA. Rocheville led the Crusaders to their first tournament victory in 16 years and was named both team and Catholic Central League MVP.
He played for the Palm Beach (Florida) Junior Hawks in 2011-12, posting a 16-5 record and .854 save percentage before joining the Junior Rangers this season. St. Anselm plays in the Northeast-10 Conference and is coached by Ed Seney, who has been at the helm for 11 seasons.
“I visited Plymouth State and a couple of colleges in New York,” said Rocheville. “I was all over the place at first, but the monkey is off my back now that I know where I’ll be playing. We’ve been going non-stop since August, but the season is winding down with the playoffs.
“Playing hockey is always fun, and this year has been easy for me because the team has been doing so well. I want to be in good shape when I get to St. Anselm so I’ll do a lot of tough offseason training to prepare. It’s been a long journey, but now I see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
