Gustavus Adulphus

December 16, 1993



Chosen Attribute:   Choosing just one of these is really tough. But right now my heart is set heavily on Integrity

Why is this important to you?   

Integrity is important to me because of its definition. Its definition is a possession of firm principles, completeness, and wholeness. The synonyms are truth, honor, reliability, and uprightness. When you look at your captains, your father and family, your mentors and friends, and especially Jesus, they all have an un-perishing abundance of integrity. They do not only follow principles, but also expand them creating an infinite ceiling. The only place to go is up. And others see that in their walk, so others follow. I lately have been dialing my sights in on the act of boldness. Being bold is one of the most important things in my personal walk along with prayer. With boldness and prayer, my ceiling is now infinite like my fathers. Personally following the definition of Integrity has been developing my life; it is really just a short description of Christ’s personality. And it is the most important to me because it is what I need to be doing; demonstrating the light of God through my walk, having a walk of integrity.

Favorite Scripture verse:     

My favorite verse is one that my dad told me the day I committed to play college hockey last summer. It is Hebrews 11:1 - Now Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Growing up in Hawaii I hardly knew anything about hockey. It was not until I was 12 and when we moved back to the mainland when I picked up ice-skating. I fell deeply in love with the game, the game that has been a huge part of my family. It was then a dream and future goal to play for as long as I could, and through God I knew my options would be limitless. I barely broke through into the program in Edina, Mn which developed me incredibly! Training with Bernie McBain at Minnesota Made and First Athlete developed me to play for Edina High School, which was a huge blessing. This past June when I committed to Gustavus I started to cry. I will admit it. Having this opportunity through God, really is the thing I have always hoped for, but others (and including my self in many times of hardship) would have never thought it would happen.

What else should we know about you?      

My future goal is to be blessed enough to continue what I am doing here at Gustavus. That is sharing the word of God and playing hockey at a high level! I have some family over in Europe, and it would be great if doors continued to open so that after I graduate I would skate professionally there. I am definitely not against staying here and going wherever I am called to. Cough cough please Lord cough NHL cough cough.

The Lord has blessed me with a super supportive family. My dad played for Edina under one of the greatest high school hockey coaches ever, Willard Ikola, and then in college he was blessed to skate for Rube Bjorkman and Gino Gasparini. Between my grandpa (Dartmouth alumni who bated and skated for Edward Jeremiah) and my dad, I knew they would help coach me and pass on a wealth of hockey experience and knowledge.

I attend CPC (Christ Presbyterian Church) in Edina when I went to high school there and when ever I am home from Gustavus and when I was back after my years away playing junior. When I lived on O’ahu, I went to KCC (Kailua Community Church). A kind of funny story is that both Todd Lohstreter and I attended KCC at the same time! I think we overlapped for about four or five years. And when we lived out west my family attended Cross Roads Church in Aspen. One thing my dad always reminds me is to enjoy the ride. And I thank God everyday for how blessed we are.

Here at Gustavus I am heavily involved with many different orgs and clubs. When I am not in the classroom, in the gym, or skating, I am at German Club, Gusties in Ongoing Leadership Development (G.O.L.D.), Big Partner Little Partner, attending student council meetings representing my upper classman dorm as VP, and our FCA College Hockey call Monday nights which I have been privileged to take on a leadership role as admin appointed by Gary Steffes (Allen Americans ECHL). I also am regularly attending to two other Christian orgs on campus, a teammates bible study, in addition to a bible study I started that’s all about being a disciple and multiplying! I am reading a lot and digging into Francis Chan. (Franny Channy or Franny Chan I like to say) I also try to serve and volunteer as much as I can on campus in our church, as well as off campus through the Christian orgs on campus. I am so blessed to have all these new doors open up here; God has really been showing me what it is like to be a Christian athlete in college. “A Christian who also happens to be a hockey player” Gary and I like to call it. God has been challenging me in my personal and social life while here at school, and I am learning everyday what it means to live my life being “All in for Christ”.
