Nick Marculo – Cedarville University (Soccer)
Major: 
Business Administration
Final list of colleges:  Cedarville, Messiah
Reasons for choosing Cedarville:  “Financial reasons.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in soccer at the collegiate level?  “Soccer has been my passion for years, and I couldn’t imagine myself continuing without it. I’ve played club soccer at a high level for many years, and I started varsity my freshman year of high school. In the past couple of years, I realized I would be able to compete at the next level, and I pursued that goal.”
Coach Matt Benner says:  “Nick is a truly gifted player. He has a ton of creativity on the ball. He loves to take players on. He has a lot of flair, and he’s a lot of fun to watch. It’s going to be interesting to see who for us next year can bring something like that back to the table. I always enjoyed watching Nick because he made the game fun. He always found a way to do different things on the ball that a lot of high school players don’t necessarily do.”

Dylan Molyneaux – Misericordia University (Soccer)
Major: 
Informational Technology
Final list of colleges:  Misericordia, Ursinus, Eastern University
Reasons for choosing Misericordia:  “I chose Misericordia University because of the atmosphere and financial reasons.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in soccer at the collegiate level?  “I’ve always wanted to see myself playing at the higher level. This is the next step of completing my long term goal.”
Coach Matt Benner says:  “Dylan Molyneaux was really, really important to our team because he was able to play so many different roles. He could play any position on the field – he could play as a forward, he could play as a defensive midfielder, and he could even close games for us in the back. Because of that versatility, he was a really important part of our team’s success this past year, and we’re certainly going to miss a high quality player like Dylan.
“Dylan was a player who had his role change every year he was in the program. He came in, and he played in the back at first. He took on a greater role his senior year. He showed some of the younger guys what it was like to be a guy that could always be changing.”
