Having just completed his high school sophomore season, it hasn’t taken Rhode Island hockey phenom Owen Leahy long to establish himself as one of the nation’s premiere players.
However, the Boys Hockey First Team All-State performer who played a vital role in helping his team to the Rhode Island Interscholastic League Division I Co-State Championship, recognizes no one attains success alone.
“It’s great and I’m proud to have honors, but I definitely couldn’t have done it without coaching and my teammates,” Leahy, who notched 11 goals and nine assists while helping Bishop Hendricken High School in Warwick to a 12-2-1 campaign, said. “The sport of hockey isn’t just a one-man game. We want to get better every practice and every game. If we do that, we’re going to reach that final goal.”
Due to his phenomenal season and career so far, Leahy has been named an honoree for the national USA TODAY High School Sports Awards show, presented by U.S. Polo Assn. The on-demand show will begin streaming on the show website, YouTube and the USA TODAY News and USA TODAY SportsWire channels on Roku, Tubi and most smart TVs Thursday at 8 p.m. Eastern.
