where does the Galvin kid box and is his dad from SD orginally. There was a Galvin family from Redfield, SD that boxed way back when?

Yea the term "skilled position" is the Dumbest reference there is.....AP isn't very skilled looking when his unskilled line doesn't open a shoot....I know alot of so called skilled position players who still have their ultimately skilled mother (and I mean this with the utmost respect) wash their jock and pads and then brings them to the school at 10 am because their skilled mind forgot them at home on the counter.....
that's whats wrong with this Forum, the assumption is all the "best players ever went on to become the nations next CIA recruit's....when the majority didn't make out out of college.

I was very unskilled at anything I did at 13,14,15,16,17,18....I could be different....but skill is a Theory!

Grafton has its own boxing club. Galvin finished 3rd in the Junior olympic trials this summer in his weight class, i think around 180 lbs. good athlete, even a better kid. JMHO

Speaking of which, where are are these athletic skill position players in the winter? This statement isn't implying their basketball team wasn't and won't be good cause it obviously is, but the only football players I remember are Jiskra and Hanson. Do the rest play hockey?

If you don't follow hockey closely, I don't think you realize how many players it takes to make up a competative hockey team. At any given time there are only 6 players on the ice, but it takes at least 14 players who can actually give you quality minutes on the ice. 3 forward lines of 3 guys each (9 forwards), 2 defensive lines of 2 guys (4 defensemen) and a goalie. I guess what I'm saying is that a starting basketball team has 5 guys, but a starting hockey team actually has 14 guys (not 6). It takes a lot of athletes to run a hockey program.

Sorry to give you a hard time, but sort of a hockey town? Isn't that kind of an understatement? Next to the Grand Forks schools, Grafton has the most state titles and second most state tournament appearances with 45 (GF Central has 46). Heck, hockey is the reason Grafton has never been a football "power" as most hockey players there never wanted to get hurt during the football season.

Exactly. My "sort of a hockey town" was said tounge in cheek. Grafton's "sort of a hockey town", kind of like water is "sort of wet". But it's been fun to see them doing so well in nearly all sports lately.

Your right, I don't follow hockey that closely, and I figured it'd take no more than 10, but now that you break it down, it makes sense. I figured that's where they all went seeing as how hockey isn't much of a game for the large man.

Oh, you can be pretty big and still play hockey. A common size for a college defenseman is 6' 2" or 6' 4" and about 215 to 230#. Most forwards are smaller and quicker guys, but even some of them are 6' 2" and 200#. But you're right, not too many 275#'s play hockey. When you hit the ice, you are going all out (skates moving constantly) for your entire shift (about 45 seconds or so for forwards). That's why you need at least 3 lines of forwards (some teams run 4). Otherwise there just isn't any time to catch your wind.
