    5 Bridgedale Grads Phase 1 USHL Drafted

    Burnside, Haskins, Rivelli, Silich & Williams Make their Mark

    by Mike McPartlin, Headmaster, Bridgedale Academy 

     

    Bridgedale Academy is extremely proud to congratulate 5 of its graduates who were recently drafted in Phase 1 of the USHL Draft. The five, Davis Burnside, Tyler Haskins, Dominick Rivelli, Jack Silich and Gunnar Williams, are all 2003 birth year student-athletes. 

    “This was an outstanding group,” said Bridgedale Headmaster Mike McPartlin. “They were sponges in the sense that they were open to input, and willing to make changes to improve. We saw it in their dedication, focus and maturity - as athletes for sure, but also academically and as young men of character. We are very proud of them and their successes.” 

    Davis Burnside

    Davis signed as a tender with the Tri-City Storm, effectively becoming their 1st Round pick. Davis is verbally committed to the Ohio State University.

    "Investing in Bridgedale helped Davis immensely. He loved the experience and misses it every day, the whole thing, the academics, the peer group mindset. No doubt - Bridgedale had a huge impact getting him to where he is today.”

    Brad Burnside, Davis's Dad
