The Falcons are an NCAA Division III program based in New Haven, CT, and are led by head coach Kyle Wallack.
Sgro, 20, is in his first season with the Revolution Junior A team and has recorded 31 points while tallying eight goals and chipping in 23 helpers in 32 games played. Prior to joining Philadelphia, the Derry, PA native spent parts of the last four seasons skating out of the Western States Hockey League with the Oklahoma City Jr. Blazers and Cheyenne Stampede.
It’s no surprise either that the 5-foot-10 forward is ranked third on the team in points.
“He is a player that enjoys being at the rink and is always looking to improve his game,” said head coach Jon Rogger. “Sgro is the player who shows up early and stays late for practice. Jordan has been a top 6 guy for us all season and has been excellent over the past few weeks.”
To build off that note from Rogger, Sgro and Philadelphia are 9-1-0 over the last 10 games which is a Mid-Atlantic Conference best entering the weekend.
While the forward is almost a point-per-game player, Sgro's coach spoke highly of his overall presence both on and off the ice.
“His energy and compete level each and every shift is fun to watch and is the big reason he has turned a lot of college coach’s heads,” said Rogger.
“He is a player that wants to see his teammates do well and will help any way that he can. Jordan is definitely the fun type of guy on this team who brings a breath of fresh air to the locker room each day.”
The program Sgro is set to join next season first spotted him at an Eastern Hockey League Showcase series earlier in the season, and No. 21 expressed his eagerness to join the Falcons.
“I am looking forward to helping build a new program, as well as playing at the NCAA level and developing skills under the coaching staff at Magnus,” said Sgro.
Rogger believes that Sgro’s “speed” and “skating abilities” shouldn’t only benefit Albertus Magnus but help the youngster progress at the collegiate level.
Additionally, the dynamic forward credited the Revolution staff for his NCAA commitment.
“They (the staff) were a huge help,” added Sgro. “They contacted the school for me as well as talked to them at showcases and over the phone. They also helped me develop as a player so I could showcase my talents to the best of my ability and help the team win.”
Sgro is currently riding a four-game points streak and has recorded five assists in the process.
