NHS Athletics: Rockets Review

On Saturday, The Needham Soccer Club and NHS Soccer Alumni held a ceremony to honor legendary Boys Soccer Coach, Don Brock.  The highlight was the dedication of a brand new scoreboard on Brock Field!

This week, Mike Hoban was named the new Varsity Boys Ice Hockey Coach. Coach Hoban has been the Varsity Assistant Coach for the last two seasons and is very familiar with the Rocket Program. Hoban played locally at St. Sebastian’s and then went on to have an outstanding collegiate career at Babson College, where he was a two-time team MVP and served as captain during is senior season. Upon graduation, Coach Hoban played professionally in the FHL and ECHL, before moving into the coaching ranks, where in addition to his Needham responsibilities, he also coaches with the Greater Boston Junior Bruins and the Boston Brahmas.
