Name: Jack Strusz
Hometown: Red Wing, Minnesota is where I was born and raised. It is also where I developed as a defenseman, but more importantly as a person.
Years with the Rhinos: This will be my second year with the Rhinos.
What are you looking forward to this season?
I’m looking forward to spending time with the team, bettering myself as a hockey player and as a person. I’m also looking forward to the chance to win a National Championship Title.
What are your goals for the upcoming season?
My goals include being a leader for the team and winning the Thorne Cup.
What is one of the funniest moments you’ve had during your time as a Rhino?
There are so many but if I had to pick one, it would be the time when John Morales, Gunnar Bjorklund, and Chris Wilhite stood up on their chairs at Rudy’s and sang “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey.
What is the best part of playing for El Paso?
The best part is definitely the amount of respect you get from all of the other teams in the league as well as the fan base.
What is something few people know about you?
When I’m not playing hockey, I spend most of my time hunting and fishing.
