Harrison Parent: Belmont Male Athlete of the Season

  • Harrison Parent: Belmont Male Athlete of the Season


Friday, April 20, 2018

What was biggest challenge you or your team faced this season and how did you overcome it?

I think the biggest challenge was not having enough players. We didn’t have players that could play every position, so we had to teach players to play new positions that they weren’t used to playing.

Who was the unsung hero of your team?

I believe our goalie, Colin McGreevy, was the unsung hero of our team. He was a freshman stepping into a very difficult role. He played almost every game, and carried us through the quarterfinal game against Berlin. We relied on him a great deal.

If you could improve high school hockey in New Hampshire, what would you do?

I would like to have better officiating. Because of all the junior games, higher level referees are tied up officiating those games, and the referees that end up officiating our games are not as experienced at our level of play.

Do you have any sports superstitions? If so, what are they?

I always tuck in the right side of my jersey. I’ve been doing it since I started playing hockey, and I will always do it because it’s one thing that has always stayed the same throughout my hockey career.

What are some of the unwritten rules of your sport?

Some unwritten rules would include protecting your goaltender at all costs, making freshmen pick up pucks after warm-ups, and always take a knee when a player of the other team is injured on the ice.

Who on your team, coaches included, reminds you of a character in a TV show or movie?

My brother, Hayden, reminds me a lot of Patrick from spongebob. He’s always being a goofball and trying to make people laugh.

If life were a video game, what would some of the cheat codes be?

Infinite money would be a nice one, superspeed would be a really nice one too. Maybe even time travel or flying. I’d also like to have super intelligence so I knew the answer to every question.

What is something that is really popular now, but in five years everyone will look back on and be embarrassed by?

Vapes. Need I say more?

Where do you get your news?

I watch most of my news on TV, but on rare occasions I will look at a newspaper, if it’s some local sports news.

What are the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made?

The best purchase I’ve ever made was probably my truck, because it’s very reliable and I really like it. My worst purchase was probably a hockey stick that I bought, and then it broke two days later.

What’s invisible but you wish people could see?

I wish people could see their sneezes and coughs so they would cover their mouths and stop spreading their sickness.

If you could go to school in a foreign country, which country would you pick and why?

I would pick France, because I visited there and I love the country, and I have been studying French since middle school.

If animals could talk, which would be the rudest?

I think cats would be the rudest because they’re mean and I feel like they wouldn’t care about what people think about them or their opinions.

What questions would you like to ask a time traveler from 200 years in the future?

How do people travel, and are people more intelligent then than they are now?

If you were hired to show tourists what life is really like where you live, what would you show them / have them do?

I would definitely bring them to Jordan’s Ice Cream because it’s the best ice cream I’ve ever had, and I would bring them to the ice rink because that’s where I spend most of my time.

What is the craziest thing one of your teachers has done?

Probably when one of my teachers drank a whole liter of mountain dew during one class period. It was crazy.

What’s the best thing about being a teen? What’s the worst?

I like being a teen because things are still new and interesting and I have freedom to make my own decisions most of the time, but it’s also hard because a lot of adults don’t take my opinions or ideas seriously because they think I’m too young.
