After a career ending injury, Phillip went to Ohio University to earn a Bachelor’s degree. While at OU, Phillip created a flourishing Learn-to-Play hockey program, coached Mites through Varsity hockey, taught group lessons as well as private lessons to figure skaters and hockey players, and honed his skills in skate sharpening, blade mounting, and skate repair.
