Persistence Pays Off

Three time Pennsylvania State Playoff Champion, Pittsburgh Post Gazette 09/10 High School Player of the Year, Pittsburgh JR Penguins NA3HL Rookie of the year and Scoring Champion, first round pick in the NAHL, NAHL West Star of the Week as a member of the Fairbanks IceDogs and now a member of the NCAA D1 Lake Superior State Lakers.

Former Jr Penguins forward Jayson Angus, 20 of Latrobe, PA, has committed to play his NCAA D1 hockey at Lake Superior State. Over the past two seasons in the NAHL, Jayson (5’7 165lbs) has amassed 29 goals, 31 assists, 60 points and only 2 penalty minutes in 119 total regular season games. As a member of the 3HL Jr Penguins, Jayson tallied 43 goals and 39 assists (with only 2 penalty minutes) , winning the 3HL scoring title and Rookie of the Year Honors. A three time State Playoff High School champion with Latrobe, Jayson excelled as much in the classroom, exceeding a 4.0 GPA during his high school days.

Jayson’s persistence, dedication and commitment to playing NCAA D1 hockey one day has paid off.  Not only does Jayson excel on the ice but his work ethic and drive off the ice has helped Jayson to achieve just one of his many goals. A tremendous accomplishment for a tremendous athlete and person.

Congratulations Jayson and continued success at Lake Superior State.
