Foegele was not in the stands as far as I remember Snively. He played in 34 games as a freshmen and spent time with Kelleher and Potarulski on the second line as Kelleher was a sophomore and Pots and Foegele were freshmen. Downing and Willows were on the first line and Thrush and Correale spent time with them and others.
Umile loved Foegele and he wanted him on the first line eventually and Warren did play on the fourth line for one game against Union and he left the following week for Juniors as he wanted to be near his girlfriend and he was 19 years old when he left. Most of our players come in at 20 and he was a good kid and a good student.
He played his heart out on every shift and was one of the hardest working players and students we had in that era. He just wanted to be near home as he was not a booze bag and most of the other players hung out with their friends from juniors or those with similar backgrounds. Pots was probably 21 when he came to UNH and left after his sophomore year.
We all wish he had stayed but I am sure he thought it through and he made a good choice as he is a solid NHL player and will likely get even better over time.
