Roxbury: Dozen Student Athletes Sign NCAA Division Letters

Landing \ Roxbury News

A dozen student-athletes from Roxbury High School participated in a signing ceremony last Wednesday committing to play their respective sports at the NCAA collegiate level.

RHS Athletic Director Stuart Mason said, “We are fortunate to have several of our outstanding athletes join nationally recognized programs, many for Division 3 programs.”

Coaches, players, teammates, and family members joined these athletes at their signing early Wednesday morning.

Mason began, “To the athletes in the room, this is really impressive on your part and a great day for Roxbury High School. Only 5% of all high school athletes go on to play sports at any level, so to have this many athletes in this room that are going to go on to the collegiate level and play from RHS is really impressive.”

During the signing and photo opportunities, coaches and players reminisced about their experiences together in Roxbury.

Wrestling Coach Jim Dolan shared that Ricky Reimers, who is going on to wrestle at Roger Williams University, was a four-year varsity wrestler, finishing his high school career with 97 wins. “He was voted captain by this teammates and coaches this past season. He has won numerous all-conference awards and finished as a 4-time Iron Man, never missing a practice, match, or tournament.”

Senior Korben Torres, who signed with Ramapo to play soccer commented that “Throughout my athletic experience at Roxbury High School, I learned what it takes to be determined, ambitious, and consistent. Nothing comes easy without effort and that’s one of the most important lessons you can learn. Failure is the first step towards success.”

Coach Gary Irwin said Torres improved each year in size and speed and should be an asset to him at the next level.

Boys Lacrosse Coach Chris Blough has four players moving on to play at the collegiate level, Dave Biank to SUNY Cortland, Eric D’Arminio to Montclair State University, Wayne Safreed to Centenary College, and Justin Werder to Stockton State College.

Blough expressed his appreciation of the players and well wishes saying, “Wayne worked very hard in the off-season to improve his game and leadership ability. I expect Wayne will do very well at Centenary and Justin’s intensity and talent on the defensive end of the field will definitely be missed. He will certainly be an asset moving forward for a very good Stockton team.”

Blough went on to say, “Eric and Dave were four-year varsity players. Eric became a great leader and fierce competitor on the field. His offensive abilities will be missed too but will serve him well at Montclair State. I expect him to do great things there. And finally, Dave transformed himself into a great athlete. He is now the program’s all-time leading scorer and his abilities to shoot the ball as well as distribute are unparalleled in Roxbury’s history. He is a joining a perennial powerhouse team at Cortland, and I am sure he will succeed there.”

These lacrosse players will be taking with them all the lessons learned on and off the field from Roxbury High School.

Biank shared “Roxbury athletics taught me that dedication and hard work will take you far in life.”

D’Arminio echoed those sentiments saying, “My experience at Roxbury High School taught me regardless of what everyone else thinks, if you work hard and put the time in, you will be happy with the results.”

Werder went on to say, “Being a part of athletics in Roxbury is truly great. The school and community really come together to support all of our teams. The friendships I have made from football and lacrosse will last a lifetime. One feeling I will never forget is playing football under the lights on a Friday night in front of the roaring Gaels crowd.”

The boy’s lacrosse team aren’t the only ones seeing success at the next level.

Senior Hannah Bhend is going on to play lacrosse at Fairleigh Dickinson University in the fall. Coach Kevin Bewalder shared this of Hannah, “She is one of the hardest working practice players that I’ve ever coached. She never takes a drill off and always gives 110%. She has come a long way since she earned her spot on varsity her freshman year. She didn’t have a position but just outworked the rest of the girls on the team with her hustle on a daily basis. Hannah is also one of the most unselfish players, in that she would take on any role for us, even if it meant giving up a stronger part of her game, for the betterment of the team. She is the first one to be excited for her teammates’ success and to help out a younger player with pointers or advice, on the field.”

Bhend is taking more than just the sport she learned at Roxbury with her to college. “You learn a lot more than just how to play the sport. You learn how to be a role model and overall better person playing sports at Roxbury High School. That is something I will never forget and always live by when I move on in college and for the rest of my life. Thank you to everyone who puts so much effort into such an amazing program.”

Mason shared in closing with the players, “You’ve all been great Gaels. Take what you’ve learned to college and stay in touch and as you have greatness in school, make sure you let us know so we can brag about you.”
