New Year's Resolutions with the Colorado Grit

Greeley's NAHL competitive Hockey Team

Hunter Cooke - Highlands Ranch, CO

"Not eat as much dessert. I’m doing it because it adds unnecessary calories to my diet. I plan on doing this by asking my roommates to hold me accountable and denying me dessert after dinner." (This is ironic because his nickname is Cookie, per his last name haha!)

Jordan Gudridge - Greenwood Village, CO

"Start writing out what I want to accomplish each day out of the week, each week out of the month, and each month out of the year. Use the small day to day goals to build into the large goals."

Christian Carter - Littleton, CO

"I want to read the entire Bible this year. I want to read it as I wanna learn more about God and learn more about why I am here and my purpose on earth."

Chris Graves - Howell, MI

"Start giving back to the hockey community as it once gave to me. As I get older and mature I feel the need to give back to the game by inspiring and teaching the up and coming players just as my mentors inspired and taught me."

Jack Erickson - White Bear Lake, MN

“I am giving up letting in goals. I’m doing it because we’ll win games if I do that and I’ll do it by working hard.“

Max Lacroix - Castle Pines, CO

"Become a better cook. I will learn from my roommate, Mason Sturm, as he is a master chef."

Luke Helgeson - Anchorage, AK

"Become a better human that is more understanding and less judgmental towards life."

Nicholas Capasso - Northford, CT

"I don’t want to hit snooze on my alarm anymore. I want to get up when I hear my alarm and get my day started, not hit snooze and wait to get my day started."

Payton Miller - Flemington, NJ

"This year I want to learn to play the piano."

Wilder Jacober - Carbondale, CO

"Be more concentrated on whatever task is at hand, as I believe it is important to be in the present moment."

Landon West - Plymouth, MI

"Learn how to cook new meals. After all, who doesn't love a good cook?"

Alex German - Colorado Springs, CO

"Be more active in the community & also have better time management. I hope to be more active in the community. I want to support the people that come out & support us throughout the season."

Quinn Bowden - Aspen, CO

"Help our team make the playoffs. I plan to do this by getting stronger & putting the puck in the back of the net!"

Romulus Riego de Dios - Gahanna, OH

"Get stronger physically. Physical strength is crucial for success on the ice and I plan to get stronger by pushing myself every time I enter the gym or get on the ice."

George Poirier, Nolan Shaw, Marek Thompson - Arvada, CO; Breslau, ONT; Fort Collins, CO

Each of these three young men is hoping to read anywhere from 5 books a year to one book a month in 2024. Reading helps keep their minds sharp and in turn can improve their athletic performance.
