Cortland-Homer Golden Eagle Jed Brazo was thrilled to be named the Section 3 Division 2 Player of the Year, but the post-season honors weren’t done.

The sophomore forward was recently named a New York State All-State Hockey Division 2 First Team recipient by the New York State High School Hockey Coaches Association.

Brazo finished the season with 29 goals and 26 assists for 55 points, the sixth best single season total by a Golden Eagle. He is tied for fourth place on the Cortland-Homer all-time scoring list with 66 goals and 63 assists for 129 points. Brazo is tied with Paul Zimmerman (2005-2009) who hae 52 goals and 77 assists. With two season to go, Brazo had a shot at the top spot held by Jake Plunket (1998-2001) who has 178 points on 89 goals and 89 assists.

“Jed has one of the quickest and most accurate shots that I have seen,” Cortland-Homer head coach Chad Totman said. “His ability to turn his wrist over and put the puck right where he wants is impressive. Jed is self driven, setting individual goals for himself and works everyday on the little things to reach each goal. He is an outstanding leader who relates with all players on the team and plays with a ton of passion.”

Joining Brazo on the NYS Division 2 All-State First Team are John Jay-Cross River senior forward Jack Brown, Skaneateles sophomore forward Garrett Krieger, Rye senior forward Declan Lavelle, Skaneateles sophomore defenseman Cam Lowe, Clinton junior defenseman Corbin Melie and Clinton junior goalkeeper Dan Frank.
