From his earliest days at Ridley, Darren was an athletic force, playing on five Ridley teams in Grade 9 alone: soccer, hockey, squash, tennis, and cricket. He played on the First Tennis team and captained both First Soccer and First Hockey.
His favourite memories from his Ridley days include a hockey trip to Belgium, France and Germany with coaches Dennis Hull, Brian Iggulden and Keith Mawhinney. After graduating from Ridley, Darren attended Middlebury College in Vermont, where he played varsity hockey from 1983-87.
Darren’s grateful for the bonds of friendships forged with his teammates—particularly during many long bus rides. And, a competitive spirit clearly still burns in the eye of this Tiger. Trading his hockey stick for a golf club, Darren fondly recalls victories in Muskoka with classmate Michael Croxon ’83, “defeating numerous Ridley and UCC alumni!”
