Knee deep in hardware

When John Curry receives his diploma later this month, his family will have no problem deciding on the appropriate graduation gift. What "Johnny B. Good" needs most is a trophy case. A 2007 Hobey Baker Award finalist, he also was the recipient of first team RBK All-American honors, the Beanpot MVP and Eberly Awards, New England's Most Valuable Player Award, the Walter Brown Award for best American-born college hockey player in New England, the Hockey East Player of the Year Award, the ITECH Goaltending and Three Star Awards and the George V. Brown Award as BU’s MVP.

At last Monday’s BU Annual Student Athlete Awards Reception, Curry added another pair of honors. He received the Mickey Cochrane Award as BU male athlete of the year and the prestigious E. Ray Speare Award for top male scholar-athlete. Curry earned a 3.5 GPA in the fall of 2006 to earn a spot on the Dean’s List and also boasts a 3.1 cumulative GPA.

Curry is the first hockey player to win the Speare Award since Shawn Ferrullo did so in 1997 and Jacques Joubert in 1995. Previously Terrier pucksters to win the award include Chris Matchett, Terry Meagher, Bill Burlington, Steve Stirling, Larry Davenport, Brian Gilmour, Don MacLeod and Paul Whelan.

Note: Yes, the photo above is from 2006 not 2007, but it certainly is a memorable one.
