WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Coach Crain excelled at taking players that wanted to learn and improve and making them better. He recognized players with talent who worked hard and were devoted. In turn, he promoted them as much as possible. I feel extremely fortunate that I had him coach me for two years. I see now how he elevated my game higher than any other coach at that time, making it possible for me to get drafted in the OHL draft. I feel very fortunate and grateful that I had him as my coach. Several players and myself all got drafted and played at higher levels of hockey because of Coach Crain’s help.
