SDA Player Selected for the National Team
Dale Lepper, a member of the SDA 2003 Nike boys team, has been selected out of thousands of boys to join the 2003 Boys National ODP Team! Dale expressed his gratitude in an interview saying, “I am truly honored to be able to go through this experience.” He has had the ball at his feet as far back as he can remember. He is a sophomore at Poland Central School District, playing attacking mid for his high school team. This past season, Dale had his best season yet, with 13 goals and 12 assists, leading his team to a division championship and 18-1 overall season.
This is Dales first year with SDA, and his team recently participated in the USYS National League in North Carolina and in Florida. Dale stated, “SDA has improved my skill set and tactical ability along with my soccer smarts in such a short amount of time. I love my coaches and teammates like family.” Dale voiced his love for the game in the interview, saying that each time he steps on the field, he knows he is going to have a great time, no matter the outcome. Dale’s inspiration is Kylian Mbappé, from France’s National Team.
Congratulations on this accomplishment! We look forward to seeing all you accomplish in the future!
