Johnny Hrabovsky

U.S. Air Force Academy
Systems Engineering


Hrabovsky carries a 3.43 cumulative GPA in his major of systems engineering and has a 3.13 overall cumulative GPA. Last season he was named to the Atlantic Hockey All-Academic Team.


Hrabovsky has been selected to numerous leadership positions in his squadron. He was chosen as the Deputy Patrol Commander during Expeditionary Survival and Evasion Training, which is a summer military program, working directly with the program’s commander and was responsible for the patrol section of survival and evasion course. He also served as an evasion instructor, teaching rising sophomores how to evade from foreign enemies. Hrabovsky is currently the security officer in his squadron and was selected as the Squadron Senior of the Month in September for his work. As a junior, he was named an element leader with a staff of eight under his direction in the squadron.


Hrabovsky has volunteered for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk for the Cure, assisting with the setup and breakdown of the event and also walking to help raise awareness for juvenile diabetes. This past summer, while on leave from the Academy, he volunteered at his former high school to help them not only with their hockey skills, but also by talking to them about what it takes to succeed in both the classroom and on the ice. In September, Hrabovsky volunteered for a program called Break Time through the Goodwill Possibilities Center in Colorado Springs. Break Time is a program designed to look after children with disabilities while their parents enjoy a night to go out and relax together. Members of the team spent the evening playing games and doing crafts with the children.


Hrabovsky was a second-team all-Atlantic Hockey selection in 2015-16. He played in 36 games and was the team’s top scoring defenseman with seven goals and eight assists, ranking third in the conference with a +14 in league games by a defenseman. His six goals in league play were tied for third in the league among blue liners. He scored the game-winner in overtime to beat No. 5 Denver in the season-opener and earned a career-best two goals and three points—including the game-winning goal—in the win over AIC on Jan. 8. Hrabovsky has been a top-four defenseman for the Falcons all four years, and as of nomination time, had played in 106 career games with 12 goals, 23 assists and 35 points.
