Duncan, BC – The Cowichan Capitals are very pleased to announce Jake Switzer has committed to play for the Concordia University Wisconsin Falcons starting this fall.
The 21-year old native of Swansea, Illinois spent the last two seasons with the Capitals playing a total of 108 regular season games as both a forward and defenseman. A tireless worker and a leader both on and off the ice, Switzer is thrilled to begin his NCAA career with the Falcons who play in division III’s NCHA conference.
“I’m extremely excited about committing to play at Concordia,” said Switzer. “It’s an excellent opportunity for me to get a high quality education while playing high quality hockey at the same time.”
The 6’3″, 215 pound Switzer amassed a total of 12 assists and 133 penalty minutes during his time with the Capitals while wearing an “A” on his jersey this past season.
“Jake is the ultimate team player with a tremendous work ethic on and off the ice,” said Capitals Head Coach and General Manager Bob Beatty. “He provides a definite physical presence and versatility with his ability to play defence or forward. He will block shots, finish checks, and make the team harder to play against.”
The qualities admired by the Capitals are just as appealing to Concordia.
“We are very excited to add Jake Switzer to our hockey program,” said Falcons head coach, Jasen Wise. “Switzer’s work ethic, team first attitude, and high compete level will make him a tenacious force at Concordia. We are excited to see Jake patrolling the blue line in royal blue and white this fall.”
