Jaxen Andersen Selected to Play for Team Texas

By AHAI 03/22/2019, 12:45pm CDT

Andersen will represent Amarillo Hockey on the national stageā€¦

For the second consecutive season, a player from the Big Texan Bulls Varsity team was selected to Team Texas. Team Texas will participate in the heavily scouted America’s Showcase tournament April 11th-15th, 2019 in St. Louis, Mo.

The Showcase Tournament, is sponsored by USA Hockey and supported by the Texas Amateur Hockey Association (TAHA), is open to High School Juniors and Seniors from across the state who are currently playing high school hockey in Texas.

Andersen was the captain of the Bulls and had a career high season in every category. His league leading 36 points (14 goals and 22 assist) for a defenseman propelled him the win the Rio Grande High School Hockey League Defenseman of the Year award.

“I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to represent Amarillo High School hockey at the Americas showcase tournament. We have a great hockey program in Amarillo, we are developing a lot of players and have a winning culture. Being selected to Team Texas wouldn’t be possible without all of my teammates and our great coaches.”, expresses Andersen.

“Amarillo Hockey places a major emphasis on proper development. The player must commit to the process and buy into becoming the best they can be on and off the ice. For a player to be good enough to play on the national stage they need to be dedicated off the ice. Jaxen did just that. His effort and attitude were excellent and his dedication and discipline to taking care of details on and off the ice everyday gave him this tremendous opportunity. There are no secrets to being successful. Its grinding it out and staying consistent. Jaxen serves as fine example to his peers and to the younger kids coming through our program that hard work and trusting in the process is the key to reaching your goals.” explains, Austin Sutter, who served as Jaxen’s coach for the past three seasons.

Amarillo Hockey is proud of Jaxen and wishes him and Team Texas the best as they travel to St. Louis in April.
