Athlete of the Week: Corcoran's Matt Eccles

Eccles has helped the Syracuse Cougars to a 16-1 record this season

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - In his senior season Matt Eccles has the Syracuse Cougars primed to make a run towards a Section Championship.  The Cougars have won 15 straight games and are 16 and 1 this season.

“I love hockey. My career is coming to a close and I want to win a championship. We try and take it one game at a time. One practice at a time, one day at a time," said Matt Eccles.

Eccles began his playing career at the age of three on an outdoor rink that his dad built.

“It was special because I used to play with all my brothers on the back rink. We would just go out there and have a good time. I always used to dangle my brothers and they would get embarrassed,” said Matt Eccles.

This season Eccles has scored 17 goals, adding 19 assists.

Congratulations to Matt Eccles. The Nice-N-Easy Grocery Shoppes News Channel 9 Athlete of the Week.
