VIDEO: Allen Park High hockey team on Local 4 News!

With the 2022 Winter Olympics right around the corner, we thought we should kick off our Winter 4Frenzy with a sport we'll soon be watching: ice hockey. And that brought us to Allen Park High School.

Local 4′s Kim DeGiulio went to Allen Park High School to highlight a team with a bright future! Meet the Jaguars and see just how tough these guys are!

Watch their highlight in the video player above.

We’ll be doing stories like these on Sunday mornings, featuring a local school or student participating in the 4Frenzy Fan Choice Awards.

Varsity Head Coach Jeff Mason, who’s been coaching for almost 25 years, says his team usually practices three to four times a week. He says consistency on the ice is what it takes to be good at this sport, among other things.

The Jags are a young team this year, which makes coach Jeff excited for the years to come.

“We got 11 sophomores on the team which is way more than we typically have. We got a freshman goal tender. So we’re definitely a young team,” said Mason.

But this year, the team is getting the chance to learn from their 3 seniors, while traveling around the state to play.

“We have a lot of fun. I mean, to play varsity hockey for your school is truly an honor,” Mason added.
