"I am very happy for Dimetri to receive this well-earned recognition. Dimetri has had a very positive impact on our program this year though his consistent competitiveness, grit, and leadership," said Eagles' head coach Shawn Postiglione. "Dimetri is a great kid who brings a joyful, upbeat attitude to our program, and I am excited to watch his and the rest of our young team's continued development in the months ahead."
