Congratulations to the Danbury Whalers, who won the Federal Hockey League (FHL) championship (the Commissioner’s Cup) on Friday night by completing a sweep of the Dayton Demonz. A special congratulations to Herm Sorcher, Managing Partner and CEO, and Alan Friedman, President and CFO. I have worked with Herm and Alan before the team played a single game in Danbury and have been duly impressed with their passion, drive and the product that they have brought to Danbury.
I often refer to Herm as the hardest working man in sports. If you are a student interested in a career in sports, attend a Danbury Whalers game next season and watch the guy in the green sweater. He does everything from greeting fans, to running promotions in between periods, to handing out chuck-a-puck prize money, to supervising the in-game operations.
When the team first came to Danbury, Dan Canavan sat down with Herm for an interview – click here to read it.
