Cedar Rapids RoughRiders forward Pat Cannone has committed to Miami of Ohio, the RoughRiders announced today. Cannone will begin his college career next season.
Cannone, 20, is the Riders’ second leading point-scorer. The Bayport, New York, native has scored eight goals and totaled 20 points in 20 games this season. Cannone is also tied for the team lead in plus/minus rating (+8).
