ST. MARYS — George Matthews spent 23 years teaching middle school students in Summerside, Prince Edward Island in eastern Canada, all the while broadcasting minor league, college and junior hockey. Often Matthews lent his voice to teams for little or no money. He spent hours driving to outposts of the hockey-crazed country, only to make that long drive back home so he could get up and teach the next morning.
Minster junior Ethan Wolf announced on Twitter on Wednesday night that he has verbally committed to play college football at the University of Tennessee and new head coach Butch Jones.
“after a long hard recruiting process .. i decided to become a Tennessee Volunteer!!” Wolf tweeted on Wednesday.
