Written by: David Nicoletti

Guess who's back, back again

Webby's back, tell a friend

See what I did there ;)

But yes, it is true, Ethan Webb has found himself back in the city of Johnstown. But this time, as a college golf transfer from Stevenson University, located in his hometown of Lexington, South Carolina. The news of Webb's transfer to the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown came Sunday afternoon via UPJ Golf on social media.

The Men's Golf team took to Instagram (@upj.golf) and Twitter (@UPJ_Golf) to state the following:

We are excited to announce a transfer into our golf program! Welcome Ethan Webb to the program!


So now the question is, how did Ethan Webb originally find himself in the city of Johnstown? Well, to start, let's flashback to March 2nd, 2018, where Webb found himself added to the Tomahawks roster late into the 2017-18 NAHL season, after spending the majority of the year with the Esmark Stars 18U program of the NAPHL (18U Tier). The 6'0" defensemen went on to suit up in three games, tallying one assist, which came against the New Jersey Titans on March 25th, 2018.

Webb then continued to spend the next three seasons (2018/19 - 2020/21) with the Tomahawks. One of those seasons serving as one of the teams' four alternate captains (2020/21), alongside Anthony Mastromonica, current Austin Bruins defensemen and alternate captain Liam Whitehouse, and Caden Lewandowski. Throughout those three seasons, the left handed shot put up 29 points (4G, 25A) in 120 games. Along with two assists in 14 playoff games.

After the 2020-21 regular season had concluded, Webb committed in May of 2021 to play NCAA Division III hockey at Stevenson University. But later decided to pursue a college athletic career in golf, which brings us to today. After a few months with Stevenson Golf, Webb has officially transferred and is on his way to Schoolhouse Rd. Returning to the city of Johnstown, after a quick see you later from last hockey season.

For Webb and the city, I guess you can say it's true about when they say that "it's not a goodbye, it's a see you later." It sure did prove to be just that.

UPJ is coached by Mike Drahos, who also serves as the Pitt-Johnstown head women's basketball coach, but took over the men's golf program prior to the 2014-15 season.

Good luck to Ethan on the course, and welcome back to Johnstown!
