“Zac is such a great young man and the Lumberjacks are proud to be associated with him and his educational/hockey journey. We are confident that Zac will represent the Lumberjacks well at University of Central Oklahoma. Zac has been a consistent warrior this season and has been a leader both on and off the ice,” remarked DelCastillo.
“I am excited to commit to the University of Central Oklahoma for the upcoming fall. I am very happy for the opportunity to continue my education while still being able to play the game I love. I want to thank my parents and family, Mr. Lary, Coach Hamre, Coach Doc and Coach Gill for all their effort and support. I'm anxious to get started next season and couldn't be more thankful for the opportunity I've been given,” remarked Turner.
