The words are a lifeline for surviving Humboldt Bronco players and their families in the wake of the April 6, 2018 bus tragedy. “Always have hope and BELIEVE that everything is possible.”
Sixteen people were killed, and another 13 injured when the bus carrying an SJHL hockey team was struck by a semi-truck that went through a stop sign. The tragedy sent the entire nation into mourning.
Broncos’ Coach Darcy Haugen was selfless, inspirational and motivating, building up his players to be great ambassadors and role models both on the ice and in the community.
His widow, Christina, said, “Every single kid on that bus was an incredible human being because that was the culture he designed and he expected.”
The Core Covenant was written by Darcy for hockey players but their inspiration can be adopted by anyone. They arose out of his sincere faith and his admirable character – the coach every player wanted to play for, and that other coaches wanted to emulate.
