JACK TYNDALL - PINE-RICHLAND
Normally defensemen struggle to find the spotlight, but Jack Tyndall is no stranger to accomplishments that gain positive attention. Of course, he was a member of the 2019 Class AA Pennsylvania State championship team at Pine-Richland, where he also participated in the 2019 USA Hockey High School National Tournament. When that team graduated a significant amount of talent and moved up to PIHL Class AAA for this season, Tyndall picked up the responsibility of making this year’s squad accomplish its lofty goals, as well. He has primarily done so by being strong and steady on the backend for the Rams, who have yielded the least number of goals in the AAA classification . But Tyndall also has points in 6 of his 10 games this season to rank in the Top 5 in scoring among AAA defensemen. The result of Tydall’s leadership and accomplishments is another formidable Pine-Richland team, one that sits in second place in the PIHL Class AAA standings and has emerged as a strong contender for another championship.
But it is away from the rink that Tydall puts up his best accolades. He is an outstanding student as a senior at Pine-Richland High School, boasting a 4.2 cumulative GPA. He gained more positive attention when he posted a score of 1370 on his SATs. Those feats made Tyndall an easy selection for Pine-Richland’s National Honor Society, and he is the secretary of the Technology Student Association at P-R. Outside of the rink and classroom, Tyndall volunteers his time with the TRY special needs organization, a group that provides therapeutic recreational programs to mentally and physically handicapped youth and adults.
