A CUTTING EDGE - 03/31/06 

Toronto native Jacob (Jake) Anderson '09 realized his boyhood dream of playing hockey internationally when he was invited to participate in an international hockey tournament in Russia, April 4-10.

As a member of Team Canada, he will play several other experienced teams to build his own skills. He will be far from home, but not too far from family. His brother and cousin have been invited to play on the same team. According to Anderson, hockey "runs in the family." 

Although Trinity does not have a hockey team, Anderson feels that the College played a part in his opportunity to go to Russia.

"I came to Trinity and put it in God's hands," he says, "Without that, none of this would have ever happened." 

Anderson also says he has many supportive friends at the College, both new ones he met this year and those from his high school years at Timothy Christian High School in Elmhurst, Illinois.

Though hockey is his first love, it is not the only sport Anderson enjoys. He also plays golf and tried out for Trinity's baseball team this year. He didn't make it, but that won't stop him.

 "You don't give up," he says, "I'm just going to practice and get better over the summer." 

Anderson will return to the College after the tournament is over. He has been playing organized hockey since he was 5 years old. After high school, Anderson spent a few years playing hockey in Canada before coming to Trinity.
