During their run towards the title Kape scored the game winning goal in double-overtime against Michigan-Dearborn in the semifinals and he scored an empty net goal to close out the scoring in a 3 – 1 win against Penn State to seal the National Championship. Upon graduation, the Rams renamed their Inspirational Award to the Brandon Kape Inspirational Award which is voted by his peers each season.
