The Philadelphia Revolution are proud to announce that two players have made college commitments. Dean Zerby and Josh Suboyu have both made the commitment to attend and play for the Fitchburg State University Falcons.
Dean Zerby is a forward from nearby Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He is a 1995 birth year, 5-foot-8-inch, 175-pound player who has a knack for the offensive side of the puck. In his second year with the program and the league, he has accumulated 4 goals and 18 assists in 33 games played. Last season, Zerby amassed 11 goals and 12 assists in 44 games played.
“I’m extremely excited to make my commitment to such a great program at Fitchburg State,” explained Zerby. “I think it’s a great fit for myself. The support I have received throughout my time with the Revolution has been nothing but great. I can’t thank the coaching staff enough for their help, but most importantly, I am most grateful for my parents for giving me the opportunity to chase my dreams.”
Josh Suboyu is a third year defenseman with the Revolution program. Although the EHL veteran is listed at 5-foot-10-inches, 180-pounds, he plays a much bigger game. The physical nature of his playing style is an attribute that he thrives on. He has enhanced his abilities on the ice by willing to engage with any opposing player. The 1995-birth year, Bradley Beach, NJ native currently has stat line of 7 assists in 29 games played.
“Josh is a player I have had the privilege of knowing for the past couple of years,” said Revolution General Manager Chris Kanaly. “He’s not the biggest guy but he plays big. He’s extremely tough and he is one of the best teammates for the boys. I am happy to see him go to a good program and I am confident he will do nothing but good things for them.”
The college commitments are starting to pile on for the team as they head towards the latter stages of the season. Zerby, Suboyu, and the rest of the Revolution EHL team will look to add more wins to the record this weekend as they will play host to a league mini showcase. They will play on Friday, January 29 against the New Jersey Rockets at 5:00pm. After that, their Saturday, January 30 tilt will come against the New York Bobcats at 1:45pm. The weekend finale is an early morning 8:00am puck drop against the New York Applecore on Sunday, January 31.
