QuickStick Q&A: St. Lawrence’s Harrison Koch
Replacing All-American Conor Healy on attack will be no easy task. Who are some names to keep an eye out for this spring offensively?
Conor was a huge part of our team’s offense and bailed us out of a lot of close games. He was truly a beast. Replacing him will be tough but we have a ton of returners who will make significant contributions. Look out for Junior Transfer Connor Caffery (Ohio Wesleyan University) who was an All-American last year and can help out team offensively.
Favorite bus movie(s)?
Holes is a team favorite.
What game is everyone most looking forward to this season?
RIT, after losing in OT last year in the Liberty League Championship Game, we’re looking for redemption.
Make the case for why your team could go deep in the postseason (conference or national).
We graduated 18 seniors so we lost a ton of leadership and big game experience. However we return some key starters from last years team and the competition for starting spots has been heated. We’re going to be overlooked because we graduated so much, but we still have the grit that was instilled in the previous years.
Toughest matchup you’ve ever faced? (can be team matchup, or personal in college or HS?
Caleb Kane, an All- American defenseman from last year’s team. Matched up against him everyday in practice. My arms were tattooed blue by the end of the year.

Beating Yorktown (NY) my Senior Year at Wilton for the Turnbull Cup, a game that’s been played since 1969.
