Lifelong Spartan, Drew Eid, Decides on Worcester State University 

Exeter, NH — Drew Eid, a Seacoast Spartan since the age of ten, has committed to Worcester State University, for the fall of 2020.

The 6 foot 3, two way center took a one year break from Seacoast but returned to Exeter for his final year of Junior Hockey. The Maine native prides himself on playing hard in all three zones and is well suited for the college game. 

“If you do not have a guy like Drew on your roster, you should not sleep until you find one,” said Head Coach Brett Tryder. “It can’t be overstated what Drew meant to our team this year. He is that rare player that gives you everything that he can for every second that he is in the rink. We used Drew in all situations this year and he was a big part of our inaugural season. It was great to have Drew back in Exeter and I couldn’t be happier for the entire Eid family. I am looking forward to seeing him compete at the college level, next season.”

Drew had some things to add about his time in Exeter, “I would like to personally thank the Seacoast Spartans for giving me the opportunity to play hockey at a high level since I was ten years old. I got to finish where I started, everything came full circle which was amazing to see. I can’t thank Coach Tryder and Coach Mallet enough for making my last year of junior not only successful but extremely enjoyable. Coach Tryder didn’t put a team together, he built a family.”

Drew had some thoughts on the year ahead, “I am beyond excited to play for both Coach Toporowski and Coach Coughlin. They both expect everyone to play a hard sixty minutes, stop and starts, and play to the systems. I definitely feel like I will be able to help the team win games with my two way play. Learning from a pro-achieved Coach is always a big bonus to me. I can’t wait to get started!”

Tryder finished, “Drew and the Eid family will be sorely missed in Exeter and we wish him the best of luck at Worcester State.”
