Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton

Proud to be American, but this has nothing to do with the Olympics…At least not yet.

Bryce and my daughter MeeshaLet me give you a little history of our best friends Kristi and Dennis Ebert. These two have been our best friends for over 15 years and mywife has known Kristi for over ________. If I tell you that, I giveaway their ages and I really don’t want to die.

Well, Dennis and Kristi’s first child was Bryce Ebert, who has always been a high energy kid who always has had a love for sports, but he didn’t find the sport he truly loved until he discovered hockey. Now, as you can imagine, being an American and living in an area that doesn’t ever have frozen lakes and ponds, hockey isn’t a big sport.

But, his parents were willing to take him for training at one of the two ice rinks in the 30 miles around their house to make sure their son was given the chance to play the sport that he knew he was meant to play. I’ve watched many of his games over the years and always have been entertained and amazed at the skill of these young kids on the ice.

But, there was something different about Bryce and you could see it from the first time you watched him. He didn’t get distracted by anything, he always knew were that puck was and he was fast and strong even when he was 2-3 years younger than some of the other players on the ice.

Well, he was invited to play on a team out of Kent, Washington and though his parents would have to be driving him almost every weekend to events inWashington, California and Canada, they did it because he enjoyed the sport and he was good. (Scratch that, he was great.)

Bryce today


Now, fast forward to this past weekend in a small town in Canada about 200 miles east of the Olympic Village a small feat happened, where for the first time in 38 years, an American team won this hockey tournament. Now, as cool as this is, it gets better. Bryce was scouted while at this event and now has been invited to play next year in a tournament in Europe.

Bryce makes me proud to be an American where a kid from a town that doesn’t have a great hockey tradition can make his dream come true of becoming someone great. Hopefully, in 4 years when he is old enough to playwith the big boys, I can go see him play in the Olympics in Russia and sit beside his parents and cheer him on and I can say that I finally know an Olympian personally.

So, congratulations Bryce, you should be proud of your accomplishments. I know we are. One last thing, great job being the first American team in 38 years to beat the Canadians on their home turf and win the tournament.
