Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings Austyn Quarters Commits to RMU Gold Hockey
On Sunday, the Robert Morris University Men's Gold Hockey Team announced the verbal commitment of the USPHL's Wisconsin Rapids RiverKings Austyn Quarters to the Eagles class of 2018.
Quarters, a speedy and gritty right-handed center, has amassed 56 points 41 games for the Riverkings. A team captain, it is expected that Quarters will quickly establish himself as an essential contributor on the Eagles' special teams. The Bozeman, Montana native plays for his father the highly respected Marty Quarters- whose teams are known to combine talent with a relentless approach to the game; a philosophy that has been the hallmark of RMU Eagles hockey.
" I loved the fact that the school is in the heart of such a big city, but still has the college atmosphere at the same time," said Quarters. " I chose to attend Robert Morris University because the organization and dedication to the team seems incredible, and I'm driven to continue my growth throughout my four years."
" Recruiting Austyn was a real priority for the program," said Director of Hockey Operations, Mason Riley. " The staff felt he was a perfect fit in terms of character, competitivness and talent. With our large number of senior graduates, we are looking for student-athletes who are ready to play, and who can help us remain a top-10 program. We want freshman who aspire to reach their potential and who want to be champions. Austyn exceeds everything we look for on our wish list."
