Coach Bob Feels the Love

Hello to all Dawg Nation. We all know times are certainly difficult right now, and that’s why days like today are so very important. Bob Schoepflin has dedicated his entire life to his community and to the game he loves most, hockey. As a player and coach, Bob has been an integral part of the Colorado hockey landscape for nearly 50 years!! Recently diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, this wonderful man has had to be isolated in a time when he needs his family and community the most. Today we were able to change that, at least for a little while… as we joined forces with the Arvada hockey community and embarked on a surprise parade and check presentation to a very deserving Bob Schoepflin. A train of nearly 30 cars, with horns honking and balloons & signs waving, rolled past an incredibly surprised and emotional Bob and Suzanne as they stood on their front porch and took it all in. Check presentations for Dawg Nation, even and especially in the time of a pandemic, must go on. Thank you to all who made the time to give this special family a very special day.

“Thank you so much for today, and everything you guys have done. It was so amazing and so helpful to my family. Sincerely thank you for everything.”

Matt Schoepflin, Ralston Valley head coach
