Johnstown forward Horn makes NCAA commitment
May 23, 2017
The Johnstown Tomahawks, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are proud to announce that forward Tommy Horn has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at SUNY-Oswego beginning in Fall 2017.
Horn, a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, completed his second season with the Tomahawks in 2016-17, earning 25 points (nine goals, 16 assists) in 39 games. The forward led the Tomahawks in penalty minutes with 192. He was also an assistant captain.
"I'm very happy for Tommy on his commitment to Oswego," head coach Mike Letizia said. "They are consistently one of the top programs in the NCAA and their style of play and atmosphere should fit Tommy perfectly."
Horn, 21, had an up and down season, according to Letizia, but battled through the adversity to have a solid campaign.
"Tommy's season was a bit of a roller coaster with some of the different time periods he missed due to injury and illness but he was a very effective player for our team," Letizia said. "I think that he has the chance to have a huge impact at Oswego when he arrives in the fall."
Located in Oswego, N.Y., the Lakers compete in the State University of New York Athletic Conference.
Horn (6'0/200) made his NAHL debut in the 2014-15 season with the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees and would late go onto play for the Keystone Ice Miners that season. In 121 career NAHL games in three seasons, Horn recorded 59 career points.
