William Ortiz – Framingham High School

My hockey career began playing for the Framingham Jets. I played every level of hockey in the Framingham Youth Hockey Program. During my teenage years I did play in the Metropolitan League for the Boston Junior Eagles. My hockey career hit stride when I played all four years at Framingham High under Coach Paul Spear. I was a first team all-star sophmore-senior year. I was a part of the 2004 team which played at the Boston Garden for the state title against St. John’s Shrewsbury but fell short after a 4-0 loss.

Following my high school career, I was granted the opportunity to develop my game at Salisbury Prep under Coach Dan Donato. I played two years for Salisbury Prep capturing a New England Prep Title my second year. Following my second year at Salisbury I accepted a scholarship to play at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2006.

I was a memeber of the 2006 team which was the first in history to play in the National Tournament. The 2006 team also recorded Umass’ first tournament win against Clarkson. I played four strong years at Umass playing a total of 131 games recording 33 goals and 39 assist for 72 points. At the conclusion of my senior campaign, I signed a contract with the Cincinnatti Cyclones in the ECHL. I recorded my first professional points and won the Kelly Cup Championship in 2010.

I am currently a math teacher at Framingham High School and the Head Coach of Varsity Hockey and JV Baseball.
