Isaac is truly a remarkable young man of the utmost character. Everyone loves him, and he is the type of person that would do anything for anyone. We are truly grateful for his trust in us as coaches and for his incredible commitment to the Tomahawks and the Johnstown community. The sky is the limit for him on and off the ice.

“I am proud to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey and further my education at Robert Morris University,” said Isaac Holt. “I want to thank my family, friends, coaches, teammates, and the entire Johnstown Tomahawks organization for supporting me throughout this exciting process. Without these important people around me, I would not have been able to grow as a player and a person. Having so many people around me and the entire team is what makes Johnstown feel so special. Being together as not only a team, but a community and fan base is what will lead us to success individually, and more importantly as a team.”
