Walpole, MA - The Walpole Express are proud to announce the commitment of Sam Whitehouse to Arcadia University. Arcadia is located just outside Philadelphia, PA and will play in the UCHC.
“As soon as I stepped on the Arcadia University campus, I felt like I was where I belonged," said Whitehouse when asked why he made the decision to commit to Arcadia. "It is a perfect fit for me academically with an excellent business major and plenty of other great academic opportunities. As a smaller school, the class sizes allow for more individualized attention from professors, which will help me to get the most out of my collegiate experience," added Whitehouse.
Sam continued, "The Arcadia University hockey program presents a unique opportunity to be a part of a brand new program, with every player and staff member playing their part in building a new team. With Coach Pietrangelo leading the way, there is no telling what this new program will be able to do.”
Express Coach Cody Campbell said, ”Sam has been a great addition for us on the backend. Coming to us just prior to the deadline, he has jumped in and made an impact with our group on and off the ice. We couldn’t be happier to be apart of Sam accomplishing his goal of being a college hockey player.”
Sam also spoke to his time with the Express, ”I am very grateful that I was able to join Coach Campbell and the Walpole Express when I did. My first practice with the team, I immediately knew that this was a special group. Every single player has bought into what Coach is teaching, giving full effort every time we step on the ice."
Sam said he felt welcomed right from the start of his tenure with the Express, "They made me feel like I knew them from the beginning of the year. Coach Campbell began helping me with the college process as soon as I joined the team, and helped me reach a goal I had set when I was a child. I am extremely grateful for that."
"Lastly, I wanted to thank everyone who helped me along the way, especially my parents and younger brother. Without you guys, none of this would be possible,“ added Whitehouse.
Please join the entire Express Organization in congratulating Sam on his NCAA College Commitment.
