Palm Beach, FL. (July 4, 2017). Wellington, Florida has another young man; Geo Morris, born in Royal Palm Beach in 2000. Continuing his hockey career as a center with the Palm Beach Jr. Hawks for the 2017 - 18 season. Geo is a great example of what it should be like as a hockey player. Playing many years with the youth hockey program at Palm Beach Skate Zone, now he will finish his career in the Palm Beach Junior Hawks program. Geo’s last two years were with the Midget A’s at Palm Beach Skate Zone.
Morris had a great season with U16A and High School teams. He was honored to receive the 2017 Hobey Baker Character Award. Immediate plans are to continue playing with the same passion and dedication to his off-ice while anxiously waiting to start his first season as a Junior Hawk.
Coach Frenchy: “Just so very proud of Geo for becoming a Jr. Hawk in the upcoming season. Here is another coachable player that I have gotten to know. His work ethic and desire to get better! His camaraderie with his teammates will create another great asset inside our locker room. What I like about Geo; he has taken the time to learn so much about the game in the last two seasons. I had Geo under my wings for my first season in Florida; he has matured and developed both as a person and player. At the end of the day, the Junior program is about experiences in development and life lessons of the hard work it takes to get the opportunities you want in your life! We are glad to give Geo this challenge to continue playing hockey for years to come so close to home."
