Terry Fahey’s Autobiography
I am a guy out of Clarkston, MI. Clarkston is a medium size town with a huge school. I graduated from a class of about 700 students. Politics play a large roll in making teams at my school so normally only those connected to the athletic boosters make the teams. Things were starting to get better when I was in high school. I played football my freshman year. I found that the coaches took the fun out of what was once my favorite childhood game.
So instead of playing sports through my high school I started playing ice hockey out of a local arena. I loved the game of hockey and was very good at it from the start. I had always been a pond hockey skater so making the jump to competitive was different but not extremely difficult. My first year of competitive I was asked to be an assistant captain but turned it down so that another more experienced player could fill the ropes. I remained a first line player all year. I finished that season with the second most points on our team. Last year was my last year of competitive ice hockey. I helped lead my team deep into the play offs only to loose on a weak shot from center ice that was misread by our goalie in the last minutes of the third period.
Like most of the others the main reason I chose Kettering was for its outstanding co-op program. I also liked the way that my brother a former student described Kettering. He was another main contributor in my decision. The scholarship money was another perk, but by that time I had already decided to come here. The club ice hockey team also fulfilled my recreational desires. I remember watching Kettering play a game last year after one of my practices. They lost to Lawrence Tech. I remember saying that I would like to be playing in that game next year and help Kettering build an ice hockey winning tradition almost as good as the undefeated football tradition.
I plan on getting a ME degree, but if things change and I loose interest I plan...
