Jack Rathbone '18 Doing Things His Way For All The Right Reasons
Rising senior Jack Rathbone '18 was featured by the Boston Herald highlighting his immense success in hockey and plans for the future.
Rathbone, team captain and an impeccably skilled defenseman, is ranked 57th among North Americans in the final Central Scouting rankings and is one of the top hockey players in his age group. His expertise on the ice makes him eligible for next week’s NHL draft in Chicago, which has many scouts asking about his plans for next year.
Rathbone explained to the Herald his desire for staying close to home, specifically for his younger brother, Teddy, who was diagnosed as autistic at a young age. According to the article Teddy is 8 years old, making good strides with his speech therapy and flourishing in an integrated classroom at the Joyce Kilmer School.
Another reason he prefers staying local next year is to complete his time at Dexter Southfield and earn his diploma, which he stated is important to both him and his family.
Rathbone has already committed to playing at Harvard for his freshman year in 2018 and looks forward to draft possibilities then.
Way to go, Jack!
