Congrats to Met Oval’s Dylan Cordero of the U19 NPL team who has committed to St. Francis Brooklyn! Dylan took some time to answer a few questions about his decision and Met Oval.
Why did you pick St. Francis Brooklyn?
I picked St.Francis Brooklyn not only because it’s a college I’ve been wanting to attend since my sophomore year, but also because when I first visited I immediately felt wanted there. St. Francis Brooklyn has a very good Division One soccer program, and they also have a really good Business program. I am extremely happy with my decision because this means I’ll be very close to home and my family, something I’ve always wanted.
What is your primary position?
My primary position is Center Mid, but I can also play left back and right back.
How long have you been at Met Oval?
I have been at Met Oval since I was 13.
Is there anybody that you would like to thank?
I would like to thank all of Met Oval’s staff for always being there for me when I needed help and encouraging me to always be a better version of myself everyday. Specifically Coach Juan, Coach Filippo, and Coach Giuseppe for helping me become not only a better player, but also a better person on and off the field. Also a big Thank You to Coach Steve who has helped so much with my college recruiting process.
How has Met Oval helped your development?
Met Oval has helped my development as a player in many ways. They have taught me to always have a positive attitude and to always strive for the best. They taught me that in order to see results, you need to put in the hard work first. . Met Oval has not only helped me find my strengths as a player, but also my weaknesses. They have given me many opportunities to showcase my skills at the highest level. Met Oval will be a part of me forever. I would also like to thank all of my teammates for always being there for me and pushing me to do better. Met Oval, thank you for always making me feel like part of the family.
