Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight of the Week – Men's Hockey Player Jesse Root

Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight of the Week – Men's Hockey Player Jesse Root

Jesse Root was nothing shy of spectacular in the Bulldogs' successful run in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. Root scored game-winning goals in the West Regional against both Minnesota and North Dakota to send the Bulldogs to the Frozen Four. His next goal came just moments before he and his teammates raised the National Championship trophy after a 4-0 victory over Quinnipiac. Jesse Root, the 2013-14 captain of the Bulldogs, is this week's Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight of the Week.

Root has contributed to the Bulldog's success on the ice since his freshman year. In 2010-11, he played in 25 games and scored a total of eight points. In Root's sophomore year, he totaled 24 points, putting the puck in the net seven times. He also led the team with two short-handed goals. Last year, Root was named to the NCAA West Regional All-Tournament Team. He finished fourth on the team with 12 goals and 23 points.

Root, a political science major in Ezra Stiles College, was named to the ECAC All Academic list in July. He interned with Morgan Stanley this past summer.

Root and his teammates competed in the Liberty Hockey Invitational at the Prudential Center over the weekend. They fell to Brown 4-1 on Friday, but came back strong the following day with an impressive 3-2 victory over Princeton.

Don't miss Root and and his teammates take on St. Lawrence this Friday night at Ingalls Rink, when the National Championship banner will be raised for the first time.
