Annalisa Lascoe ‘17 & Leanna Harris ‘18: After graduating from Romeo High School and being named Michigan’s, “Mr. Hockey” in 2016, Logan Jenuwine’s hockey career continued at the next level. As of today, Jenuwine plays for the USHL Waterloo Black Hawks, a stepping stone on his road to college hockey.
“I chose to play for Waterloo because it’s one of the best teams in the USHL and best way to get a college scholarship,” Jenuwine said.
Logan discovered his love for hockey at a young age, bringing him unforgettable memories, Logan saw his niche in hockey as an opportunity to turn something he loved into a career. As much as he loves playing the sport, making memories with an amazing team, and traveling all over the U.S., he says he doesn’t get a lot of down time and rarely gets to see his family and friends.
“I play hockey because I want to take it as far as I can and even get a college education from it,” Jenuwine said.
On December 31, 2016 Logan Jenuwine earned his chance to play in college and committed to play at Western Michigan University. Knowing that Western’s coach, Andy Murray, was a former NHL coach influenced his decision on committing.
“I chose to commit to Western Michigan because of the coaching staff,” Jenuwine said. “They are great coaches and was the first school to really take an interest in me.”
Now that Jenuwine will no longer be playing in Iowa for the Waterloo Black Hawks, he will be able to spend more time with his family and friends. Logans preparation in Iowa aided him in receiving his offer to play at Western. In order to play college hockey, hockey players need to play Juniors, which is what Jenuwine was doing in Waterloo.
“I chose to play juniors because for hockey that is the way to college.” Jenuwine said. “It’s a once in a lifetime experience and I’m making memories I’ll never forget.”
Although, succeeding at the high school and Juniors level, college hockey will be Jenuwine’s biggest test yet.
“The game is so much faster and better than high school hockey,” Jenuwine said. “It’s also much more serious and is like an everyday job which is pretty cool.”
Continuing his journey to the next level, the Romeo community wishes Logan the best of luck on his new endeavor.
