The Pate family was introduced to hockey about 12 years ago. Gavin started skating in the Strongsville Learn to Skate program and one day he asked us if he could play hockey. This was my first introduction to the sport, and from day one I was hooked. We have met so many good friends and have traveled many miles to support Gavin and the sport he loves, and we wouldn't change one thing. During the week for the past 24 years, I have worked in the automotive aftermarket as in independent rep. Think Tommy Boy!
