Glenn started his hockey career at the age of six in a learn to skate program. He played in several local rinks growing up, most notably Branch Brook Arena which became his second home for the next twelve years. He played for Garden State, The NJ Rockets, The Essex County Chiefs, The NJ Golden Blades and Seton Hall Prep. Well known for his booming slap shot and bone crushing hits. Glenn was a four Varsity letterman (1979-1983) at Seton Hall Prep.

Under the tutelage of Dave Sloan, Joe Hanabach, Norm Kelly and most importantly John Warchol, he continued to grow and develop his skills, and helped lead all of his teams to better than .500 winning percentage every season. He attended Summer camp at South Mountain Arena and all available after school clinics at Branch Brook Arena. To further his skating skills and at the urging of the late Bob
Vietor, he started refereeing at the age of 12. Learning from the likes of Bob Vietor, John Warchol, Dave Sloan and fellow inductee Pat Dapuzzo, Glenn climbed the ranks to referee Division 1 college hockey games. His hockey accomplishments include multiple travel team MVP’s, 2nd Team All-State his Junior year and 1st Team All-State his Senior Year. He helped lead his SHP team to a 2nd place finish in the Gordon Cup Finals his Junior year and the Gordon Cup Championship and a 2nd place finish in the State Finals his Senior year.

Unable to gain entry to West Point, he continued his hockey and refereeing careers in the Philadelphia area. He was a four year Varsity letterman at Villanova University (1983-1987) and an up and coming referee and hockey administrator in the Philadelphia area and most likely a future off-ice official for The Philadelphia Flyers. Unfortunately, medical issues and surgeries derailed his dreams.

He has owned his own businesses for the past 32 years. He and his wife Maureen have been married for 29 years and reside in West Chester, Pennsylvania
