Attleboro School Adds Former Injured Hockey Player to Coaching Staff
ATTLEBORO — A former Bishop Feehan High School hockey player who suffered a serious spinal injury earlier this year has joined the coaching staff at the Attleboro school, the team announced Thursday on Twitter.
A.J. Quetta is taking on the role of assistant coach for his former Division 1 varsity team.
The North Providence resident was a three-year varsity hockey player who graduated from Bishop Feehan in June.
He injured his spine after hitting the boards headfirst during a Jan. 26 hockey game in Springfield.
In the announcement, the team tweeted, "He's a tremendous individual and his presence in the rink will be a driving force for our boys in their quest" for the state title.
Quetta will work with the team's forwards, help break down practice and game film for the team, and also assist with brand building and communications, officials stated.
