MAHOPAC, N.Y.— A passion for ice hockey and a desire to steer children’s lives in the right direction are only a few reasons that Mahopac resident Mario Martirano was chosen by USA Hockey Magazine for September’s coach of the month honor.
“It’s a mystery to me,” Martirano said of how he was found by the magazine to be selected. “I’m a nice guy and the kids like playing for me. We’ve won a couple of tournaments, but it’s still a mystery to me. I guess I’m well liked in the rink and in the community.”
Originally from Yonkers, the 51-year-old Martirano has played hockey since age 8 and started coaching in his 20’s with Manhattan College, his alma mater, where he played both baseball and ice hockey.
