What They Are Saying

“Huitema’s numbers tell the tale of his scoring ability. In the 2011-12 season, he scored 23 goals in 25 games for Vancouver’s U16s, one of the highest totals in the nation. Halfway through the current Academy season, he’s hit 11 goals in 11 goals in the U18 age group.”

                - Travis Clark, ESNN

“Brody Huitema will make an immediate impact on our program.  He is an exceptionally driven young man in the classroom and on the field with a clear idea of what he wants to accomplish.  He is a polished center forward that can finish with either foot and is very strong in the air.  He is an exciting player to watch and will lead the forward line extremely well.”

                - Duke head coach John Kerr
