After a strong week that saw he and the Rocky River Pirates claim the Baron Cup I Championship, senior Ted Stueber is named the NEOSI Player Of The Week.
Stueber had a remarkable performance throughout this year’s Baron Cup run for the Pirates, including a hat-trick against Midview in an 8-2 first-round victory against the Middies. Stueber then potted goals against Strongsville and Shaker Heights to finish with five goals in the tournament and a Baron Cup I Championship to show for it.
The championship victory gives Stueber two Baron Cup I Championships in his career, the first coming in 2015 when he was a freshman at Rocky River. Now, he’s one of the biggest parts of the Pirates team.
Stueber talked with reporters after Sunday’s victory about how it felt to win a Baron Cup championship to start and end his high school hockey career.
“That’s the most exciting thing to me. We opened the book with a good year, we closed the book with a good year. (I’m) really excited about our win. We played good competition both years-Kenston and Shaker.”
As Rocky River prepares for their Brooklyn District run, NEOSI congratulates Ted Stueber on NEOSI Athlete Of The Week.
