Palm Beach, FL. (June 14, 2017) DJ Randle returns with the Hawks for his second season, under Head Coach “Frenchy”. Having a great first Junior year last season with the Hawks, recognized as a two-way player which was a huge asset for the Hawks. In 42 games DJ had 5 goals, 12 assists for a total of 17 points. This success had a lot to do with DJ spending most of his time as 3rd center for the Hawks. One thing Randle does great is his play in PK, he’s considered one of the best in the league. Randle is very excited to return with the Hawks and play one more year in the USPHL.
DJ: “Listen I got so much exposure and an incredible experience, teaching me a valuable lesson, of what it takes to play at this level. You need to be more consistent and ready every single game. I can’t wait for this season’s starts.” Randle is out for a few weeks with an injury but should be ready for the beginning of the season.
Coach Frenchy: “DJ is back! I have a big smile on my face. I’ve coached countless players in the last 30 years and DJ is one of my favorite players. His work ethic and eagerness to learn every single day reminds me Cole Smith from Aspen. We know Randle will show up every single day with such dedication and passion for the game. It will be my third year with DJ, I know how to motivate him, to get the best he has within to come out. We are very lucky and proud to get DJ back with us. One more thing about DJ, his great leadership within him is contagious, an exceptional addition inside a locker room. DJ will be an element important for our team again this year.”
