TOLEDO CHEROKEE LOOKING FOR BILLET FAMILIES

(2020-21 SEASON)

 

The Toledo Cherokee are looking for billet families for the upcoming season 2020-2021. A Billet Family opens their home to selected players in order to give them a safe and stable environment while they are away from their own homes.  Our players are between ages 16 and 20.  For many of them this is the first time away from home, making it essential that they are comfortable with who they are staying with.  We would like to have many options when placing our players with a family.  Most players have transportation of their own and if they do not we place them with another player who does.  The players must be going to school or working.

The players will arrive in early September and stay until the middle of March.

Billet families receive a stipend each month of $325.00 from each player they are housing to help offset the additional food and utility expenses of the household.

If you would be interested in additional information in becoming a Billet Family, please email General Manager/Head Coach Kenny Miller at kmiller@macombgroup.com or Vice President/Director of Finance Carey Manders at cmanders2@bex.net.

GO CHEROKEE!!!!!

BYRD, STELMASZAK AND CRANDALL SELECTED IN NCDC 2020 ENTRY DRAFT

Toledo OH:          The Toledo Cherokee members of the USPHL Premier (Great Lakes Conference) are proud to announce that the following players were selected yesterday in the NCDC 2020 entry draft.

The Jersey Hitmen selected Bailey Byrd (Wyandotte MI) and David Crandall (Sylvania OH). Byrd led the Cherokee in scoring last season when he dressed in all forty-four games scoring twenty-five goals and assisting on twenty-six for fifty-one points. Crandall suited up in nine regular season games and had a goal and five assists for six points.

The Connecticut Jr. Rangers selected Zeth Stelmaszak (Temperance MI). Stelmaszak also dressed in every regular season game for the Tribe scoring fifteen goals and added twenty-five assists for forty points as a rookie. The speedy forward earned a call up to the Rangers during the season last year and impressed the coaching staff enough to be selected in the entry draft.

“The coaching staff is extremely proud of these three guys, it is a testament to the organization that we are doing things the right way to get our players to the next level. Our staff feels with our college commitments and these guys going in the NCDC draft that players will want to come to Toledo and develop not only as players but as young men as well.” Said head coach Kenny Miller

About the NCDC

The National Collegiate Development Conference of 2020-21 will feature 13 teams coming from some of the most highly-acclaimed hockey organizations on the East Coast. 

NCDC organizations not only have sent nearly 150 players to the NCAA Division 1 ranks in the league’s first three seasons, but they also feature alumni in the NHL, including Jack Eichel, Charlie Coyle, Noah Hanifin, Connor Clifton, Colin White, John Marino and 2019 Stanley Cup Champion Zach Sanford.

The NCDC produced more than 130 NCAA commitments during the 2019-20 season. Out of a 50-game schedule, nearly one-quarter of each NCDC team’s games are played at scout-friendly multi-team showcases within the compact NCDC footprint. Three NCAA Division I and seven NCAA Division II/III conferences share the NCDC’s geographic area, making it even easier for college coaches and scouts to watch and meet players in person.

Full-time, professional coaching staffs in conjunction with first-class facilities and player amenities present a college and pro hockey atmosphere within each of the 13 organizations. Learn more at USPHL.com/NCDC
