Adirondack Thunder forward says goodbye to Glens Falls

Local Sports

Dear Glens Falls,

Two and a half years ago when my rights got traded from sunny Orlando, Florida to freezing cold Glens Falls, New York, I thought “oh boy, this is going to be a big change.” I flashed back to my one visit when I was with the Solar Bears and we came to play Thunder back in 2016-17.

I remember walking from the Queensbury Hotel, in my suit with three feet of snow on the ground, to Cool Insuring Arena…

Full thank you letter
