Wesley College men’s soccer team announced Tuesday that Danny Garza, Nicholas Hood, Luis Cruz, and Matthew Dina are the team Captains for the 2018 season.
Wesley College’s soccer head coach Steve Clark talked about how all four student-athletes show leadership on the field and off.
“Leadership is very important at the college level, so the appointment of captains is both an honor and opportunity for the top returning student-athletes to better themselves and positively impact the team,” said head coach Steve Clark, who is entering his 29th season at the helm of the Wesley men’s soccer program.
“All four are All-Delaware players but are also good students. Matt (Dina) has presented at Scholar’s Day and at a conference in New Orleans. Nick (Hood) coaches youth soccer in the community and Danny (Garza) and Luis (Cruz) have taken on leadership roles in the Alpha Phi Delta fraternity. All four players are always in the weight room and train hard in each practice session to become better players for the upcoming season. These four are positive examples to not only their teammates but to their communities as well. I hope with more leadership training through Wesley Soccer, we can help them to achieve more with the team at Wesley and moving forward into their careers.”
