The Texas RoadRunners will begin introducing over the next few weeks their new additions as well as returning players for the 2022-2023 season. Head Coach / GM Mike Beavis is very excited with the team he has coming into training camp this year and has very high hopes for this group.
First up is: JT Brugaletta, the 18 year old forward from the Tri-Valley Bulls U-18 program. Brugaletta is 5’10 165 lbs and hails from Pleasanton, CA. He is noted as as a crafty forward that plays a complete game. Last season Brugaletta had 49 goals and 33 assists in 59 games. “I had the opportunity to watch JT at the Odessa Jackalopes main camp at the end of July and was very impressed with his positional play. He will bring a lot of offense as well as helping out on special teams with his quickness and ability to read the play.”
When asked about his goals for this season and the future Brugaletta replied, “I hope to get better and continue my development during this season as well as mature as a player to increase my opportunities to make the jump to the NAHL and a chance to play NCAA hockey in a few years.”
Brugaletta and his teammates will hit the ice in Bryan / College Station, Texas on September 5th to begin the 2022-2023 season. If last season was any inclination of what the future holds for this team you better buckle up as this could be one wild ride!
