Johnstown defenseman Warmuth makes NCAA D1 commitment
January 10, 2020
The Johnstown Tomahawks, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that defenseman Quinn Warmuth has committed to play NCAA Division 1 hockey for Robert Morris University of the Atlantic Hockey conference effective immediately.
The 20-year old defenseman was playing in his first season with the Tomahawks, and fourth overall in the NAHL. Through 33 games this season, the 6’4/205 lb. native of Olmsted Falls, Ohio led all Tomahawks defensemen in scoring with 16 points (3 goals, 13 assists).
Warmuth finishes his NAHL career with a total of 63 points in 196 games. In addition, Warmuth appeared in both the 2018 and 2019 NAHL Top Prospects Tournaments as a member of the NAHL Selects rosters.
"We are all extremely happy for Quinn and proud of him for this opportunity to join a great program for coach Schooley at RMU and start playing right away," said Tomahawks head coach Mike Letizia.” We brought Quinn in this off-season because we really felt we needed to add an experienced, well-rounded D man to our team, and he certainly delivered. He played in all situations for us, was a great teammate off the ice, and a fantastic ambassador within our community. While we are sad to lose Quinn as a part of our current roster, we know that this was an opportunity he could not pass up. We all wish him nothing but the absolute best as he begins his college career."
Warmuth joins former Tomahawks Luke Lynch (2014-2016), Roman Kraemer (2016-2019), and Cameron Hebert (2018-2019) on the current Colonials roster.
“I just want to thank the Johnstown coaching staff, my teammates, billet family, and all of the fans for the support they have given me in helping me make my dreams of playing D1 hockey possible.” stated Warmuth. “Johnstown is a very special place to play junior hockey and I couldn’t be more thankful for what it gave me not only as a player, but as a person.”
Robert Morris University is located in Moon Township, PA and is led by Head Coach Derek Schooley.
