Garrett Gamez ’19: Sustained by Faith, Supported by Team

June 8, 2017



Cross-posted from Providence.edu:

Providence College men’s ice hockey player Garrett Gamez ’19 (Chino Hills, Calif.) was putting together a fine sophomore season when he collapsed on the bench during a March 11 Hockey East playoff game at Notre Dame. He was cleared to return home after overnight observation in a local hospital, but was held out of the Friars’ season-ending NCAA Tournament game against Harvard.

One of the Friar fans present that night was Mike Leonard ’70 & ’00Hon., himself a former Friar hockey player who lives in Winnetka, Ill. He also is a retired NBC News correspondent whose 30-year career was most notable for regular Today show feature stories. Now an independent filmmaker, Leonard often travels with his trusty video camera, especially when those travels involve his alma mater and its hockey team.
