Here at the Kent Cyclones organization, we have outstanding individuals who not only excel as hockey players, but also prove that they are versatile athletes and scholars as well. We want to recognize their outstanding performance OUTSIDE THE RINK.
Not only does the Kent Cyclones have excellent hockey players, but excellent leaders in their community, school, and church. We want to highlight these athletes who excel in these areas as well as their achievements in the other sports they play. The Kent Cyclones are proud of the leaders they have become outside the rink. Congratulations to our KENT CYCLONE athletes and their parents.

Gabe Dearden received a top honor at Silver Lake Elementary School. Each month one male and one female are selected as the Student of the Month. Gabe is described by his teacher, Mrs. Henninger, as "a leader among his classmates and sets a great example" for them to follow. Some of his qualities that were recognized by his teachers were that he is "anxious to learn, easy going, always happy and a joy to be around." His teachers recognize that hockey is important to Gabe and that although it takes up a lot of his time, he has never turned in a late assignment and comes prepared for all tests. Gabe is one of the members on the PW 1 team. Congratulations Gabe!
