Classroom

Bryant Molle, a civil engineering major, has earned a 4.0 GPA in all but one semester. He’s a member of Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society as well as an active member of both the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and American General Contractors (AGC) student chapters. Through ASCE and AGC, Molle was a team leader for 2010 ICE-Arch architects.

Character

Molle has had to overcome the obstacle of being under three different head coaches in his time at Alaska. A leader by example, Molle is well respected by his teammates and coaches for his dedication and work ethic. Coach Dallas Ferguson said, “Bryant is a team-first person. He was selected as one of the team captains. His teammates respect him because of his work ethic and attitude.”

Community

Molle is involved with several community outreach programs. He participates in Sports Night at the Denali Center for senior citizens and visits local elementary schools and reads to kids and talks about the importance of developing reading skills. Molle has also been a positive representative and role model for the Alaska Hockey program and the University of Alaska Fairbanks through several summer jobs and internships including: AlCan Hockey Camp — coaching and interacting with kids — and Field Engineer with Chugach Alaska Services Inc. (Summer 2010); Engineering Intern with Granite Construction (Summer 2009); Engineering Intern with ADOT&PF Aviation Design (Summer 2008).

Competition

As a junior, Molle scored a career-best nine points and saw ice time with both of Alaska’s special teams, including the Nanooks stingy team defense and penalty kill. As a sophomore he helped Alaska rank second in the nation in team defense (1.74 goals per game) and eighth in penalty killing (87.6 percent). After his sophomore year Molle was voted the Most Improved Player by his teammates.
