By Derek Robinson, 01/16/23, 6:45PM MST


Congratulations to Joseph Cesario on his commitment to play Division 1 hockey for the Air Force Academy.  The Air Force hockey team represents the United States Air Force Academy and is a member of the Atlantic Hockey Division.

Cesario is a 2003 Forward from Westminster, CO.  Joseph played for the Rocky Mountain RoughRiders from 2018-2022 on the 15U, 16U and 18U teams.

Cesario is currently playing Junior Hockey with the National American Hockey League's (NAHL) MN Wilderness.  Cesario has appeared in all 35 games this season and has 22 points (13 goals, 9 Assists).

"Joe Cesario has always been a young man of tremendous social and cultural integrity.  Coaching and watching him change his free spirit game play to responsibly and willingly helping his teams to Regional and National tournament appearances was impressive!  Doing so while scoring in all critical situations proved he was deserving of a D1 opportunity!" said coach Doug Smail.

We wish Joseph and his family the best of luck as he continues his hockey career and education with the Air Force Academy.
