Coleman Peppelman – Junior at Lower Moreland High School
A fifth-year veteran of the program, Peppelman is one of the league’s most dangerous offensive weapons. In 14 games, he has 41 goals and 13 assists for 54 points. He is a leader of a Lions’ squad that is second to Wissahickon in the Varsity ‘A’ standings.

Note from the coach:
“That kid is a natural born athlete,” coach Anthony D’Orazio. “Not only does he play three sports, he excels in them. He’s the starting quarterback on our football team. He’s our leading scorer on the hockey team, and – I don’t now if he played last year, but the first two years he did play baseball for the high school. He comes from a good athletic line.
“The kid has a desire to win. He never gives up no matter what the score is, and he’s very coachable and just an all-around good person. He’s just a pleasure to coach. He’s a leader. The kids don’t like him - they love him.
“He played for me in middle school when he was in seventh grade. When he was in eighth grade, he scored all seven goals and beat PW 7-6. He can take the puck off of someone, get it taken away from him, and he’ll go back and get it right back. He has a nose for the puck, and he knows what to do with the puck.”

About Coleman:
Best memory playing high school hockey:
  My best memory playing high school hockey is the Truman game this year, putting up six goals and one assist. Scoring the game-winning goal in the final seconds was great!
Part of the game I enjoy most:  I like WINNING the most. The feeling of accomplishment that all the practice pays off.
How did you get involved in hockey?  My mom signed me up in Bryn Athyn Youth Hockey when I was in kindergarten, and I have played ever since..
