"I played in California until I was 17 which is rare in this day and age. I was in no rush to leave home until I had to. Cali Camps gave me the platform to compete at the highest level against some of the best players in the region without leaving home. This camp is as good as it gets in terms of competitiveness and exposure. There were dozens of college and junior scouts, including my BCHL gm and University of Denver coach, in attendance and this camp really jumpstart ed my career down the right path."
