Who Lit the Lamp?

Matt Bloomquist Lit the Lamp!

"Matt Bloomquist not only Lit the lamp, but has kept it burning for 20 years.  Matt is an awesome husband to his wife Lisa, and father to two children... Brian an upcoming Craig track star, and Morgan, a Marshall softball star.  Both of his children tried hockey and decided it wasn’t for them.  Matt continued over the years to not only be dedicated to his family, but also his second family, the JYH club.  Matt has worked with all age levels over the years. Most recently he stepped down from Bantam A, for an earlier bedtime with our Squirt B’s. Next year he plans to take on a new adventure with our younger players and our club will be all the luckier for it. In my 8 years with this club, I’ve never met a single player that has worked with Bloomquist and wasn’t in someway inspired. He’s tough yet fair and teaches clean, skill-based hockey. His dedication is beyond compare. Thanks Coach Bloomquist. You’re the best!"

Thank you Coach Bloomquist,  Janesville Youth Hockey Club appreciates you!
