Bio: What is your most memorable ball hockey moment?

The team singing "I Want it that Way" in the dressing room at the Niagra tournament. (I left the room and had to see the other team look at me like I was gay).
------------------------------------------
Brian was voted team captain in 2007 (1st year of Junior). He first started playing as a forward but due to a perennial lack of defensemen, coach & older brother Graciano Da Ponte shifted him to defense. Struggling at first, Brian eventually embraced the position and is now counted upon to play in every situation.

When he was 17-yrs-old and in Juniors, Brian played more than a few games for his older brother's team, the original "Young Canadians". Playing with/against older players developed his appetite for competition and desire to get into better physical shape.

Brian is the only Captain the Young Canadians have ever had.
