Joel Brophy Lands D1 Scholarship
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Tuesday, August 7, 2012
Terriers catcher Joel Brophy possesses all the tools and intangibles that have lead him to acquiring a scholarship to Niagara University this week. Joel has an outstanding arm, above average blocking skills, hits for average and power and is an excellent team mate. His grit and desire round out the qualities necessary to play the demanding catching position. Earlier this summer Brophy hit a grand slam to propel the Terrier 17s to a victory at the Canada Day Classic.

Over the past year, he has also garnered two Terrier Player of the Week honors and a Gold Glove Award. The Niagara University Purple Eagles play in the NCCA D1 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC). Founded in 1883 , Niagara is known as a liberal arts school, but offers programs in technical and pre-professional disciplines as well. Joel will study Business at NU. Joel's athletic achievements are not limited to baseball alone. He excels athletically in several sports including high school volleyball and hockey. Joel's accomplishments include consecutive Athlete of the Year Awards(2011/2012) at the prestigious Burlington Sports Alliance Banquet. He was also named the 2012 SR Athlete of the Year at Notre Dame High School. Congratulations to the entire Brophy family, and continued success to Joel in the pursuit of all his academic and athletic goals.
