STORRS, Conn. - The Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes would like to recognize Thomas Janosz as today's award winner. Thomas is a stand out senior men's ice hockey player majoring in sociology with a minor in Criminal Justice. A native of Elma, N.Y., this defenseman has made a significant impact on the UConn men's hockey Program over the past four seasons.
Before entering the University, Tom played junior hockey for both the Surrey Eagles of the British Columbia Hockey League and the Ohio Junior Blue Jackets of the USHL. After joining the Huskies in the fall of 2009 he played in all 37 games of his freshman season. During both his Freshman and Sophomore campaigns, Tom tallied the game winning goals in the quarterfinals and semifinals respectively of the AHA playoffs.
Tom continued his athletic prowess throughout his junior and senior seasons and has been a wonderful role model to his peers. Since his initial enrollment Thomas knew he had a passion for law enforcement and civil service. As a sociology major, he focused his attention on coursework which would expose him to the field.
He will graduate this spring after having been named to the Athletic Director's Honor Roll six out of seven full time semesters. He has been named to both the ACES and CLAS Dean's List and continues to excel in the classroom. We are proud to honor Thomas Janosz on National Student-Athlete Day.
