Letters: Congratulations to a former Panther
I just wanted to congratulate former Park Rapids Panther hockey player Tyler Lehrke and his teammates on the Bemidji State Beaver Divsion 1 men's hockey team for their Cinderella appearance in the Frozen Four held in Washington D.C. this week. It was a real treat for me to watch Tyler on ESPN having got to watch him grow up through the ranks of the Park Rapids Youth Hockey program along with his brothers to become an outstanding hockey player. Tyler truly epitomizes what hard work can do as he was one of the hardest working athletes I've seen in my time around sports. Tyler is a great role model for other young athletes to follow, and as a Park Rapids alumnus myself I'm proud to see talented players like Tyler playing sports at such a high level.
