The Cathedral Prep hockey team is honoring one of their own.
The team creating the Jack Schoenig True Grit Memorial Scholarship in honor of Jack Schoenig.
Schoenig was a senior forward at Prep who passed away while visiting State College. The fund is an endowment to provide for any hockey player or student in need.
Prep’s varsity head coach, Alex Luddy, says “it just goes to show how many people Jack touched. He was such a special person and loved by so many, as you can see with the show up tonight, and that’s how his memory is going to live on for all the people here supporting us.”
Tuesday night’s game was a black out to show support for Jack and the Prep hockey team.
