Former Los Angeles Jr. King Andrew DeCarlo has announced his commitment to attend and play his NCAA Division I hockey at the United States Air Force Academy following his junior career.
Now in his third season with the North American Hockey League’s (NAHL) Lone Star Brahmas, the 2000-born DeCarlo, a forward, has totaled 14 points (four goals) through 11 games.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to play NCAA Division I hockey at the Air Force Academy,” said DeCarlo. “I want to thank all of my coaches, teammates and billet families who’ve helped me get here, with a special thanks to my parents and sister for all of their support over the years.
“Who knew starting out as a roller-kid in Huntington Beach, California, would lead to playing for and serving the Air Force? I can’t wait to be a Falcon; the stoke is high.”
In the summer of 2019, DeCarlo was selected and represented the Brahmas on Team NAHL at the Sirius Ice Hockey World Cup in Sochi, Russia.
Air Force competes in the Atlantic Hockey Association.
