Brett Moore '10, a sociology major at Connecticut College, landed a full-time job after graduation, in commercial real estate. But he wasn't quite ready to put his dream of playing semi-professional hockey on ice.

"It was a very good job and I enjoyed it, but the desire to play hockey never left me," Moore, who played forward for the Camels men's hockey team, tells the College's sports information director, Will Tomasian, in an interview for CC: Magazine.

Moore now plays in France for the Wasquehal Lions. He credits his Connecticut College coach, Jim Ward, for giving him the confidence to play in Europe.

"It really is a dream come true for me," he says.
