Spotlight Athlete of the Week: Meet Giorgio Estephan

July 3rd, 2015

This week’s spotlight player is 3rd year Premier Strength athlete Giorgio Estephan.Giorgio was selected in last week’s NHL entry draft by the Buffalo Sabres.

In the gym, Giorgio is a hard worker, who gets the best possible work out of every set. He is strong for his 6’0 frame, with a 245lb Bench max and 340 back squat. Working on his speed has become a priority this summer and he has already showed a full tenth of a second improvement in his 20m sprint and a 2 tenths improvement in his pro agility test scores.

Giorgio’s hard working attributes translate onto the ice as well. After experiencing a pointless streak to start off last season, he went on an offensive breakout scoring 11 goals and registering 18 assists throughout 20 games in the months of December and January. His compete level and work ethic has helped him develop on the defensive side of the puck and his strong hockey sense allows him to be in the right place to make the best play. Humble and hardworking, there is no doubt that with his work ethic and dedication, Giorgio will make the most out of his opportunity with the Sabres. Premier Strength looks forward to helping him towards his NHL goals.

Good luck at the Sabres development camp next week Gio!
