Zip_ME87...thanks for all of the research and starting this topic

 

Ezana is mentioned in a top drawer article today

https://www.topdrawersoccer.com/college-soccer-articles/di-college-players-to-watch-in-the-npsl_aid41861

 

F Ezana Kahsay, Erie Commodores FC (Akron)

One of Akron’s first players off the bench, Kahsay contributed four goals during his sophomore season last fall, making a total of 21 appearances. If he can leverage the summer with the Commodores into improving in front of goal, it could lead to a big year for the Eritrean.

Sam Gainford - St. Louis FC U23 in the PDL

F Sam Gainford, Saint Louis FC U23 (Akron)

While Gainford didn’t quite reach the same heights as he did in the 2015 season, the former Liverpool youth talent is a quality flank player that’s progressed well for the Zips. Like many others, he’s entering his final season of college eligibility and can use the PDL this summer to elevate his status of signing a pro deal after Akron.

Thanks for pointing this out, TennZip -- As I discovered that a player who I've followed the past two seasons -- German Sven Koenig, is transferring from Hawai'i Pacific to Creighton.  This kid was probably the top player in D-2 nationally, and I think was the leading scorer in PDL with KW White last season, which played in Windsor ON.  I sure wish Jared had gotten hold of him first!  Do we play Creighton this year?

I was looking for info on a local Hawaii player (Shandon Hopeau) with Sounders Academy U-18 and found this review from the SSFC Sounders@Heart blog of Nick Hinds play for the Sounders "S-2" club -- which is - their USL club, or PDL?    http://www.sounderatheart.com/thefuture/2016/12/24/13849790/s2-postmortem-the-players

 

Nick Hinds (# 40; Age 19; LB/LM; 6 appearances; 0 Goals; 0 Assist; 249’)

Potential: Top MLS LB - Backup LM

Overview: Hinds was the best of the Academy players to appear for S2. He is an athletic LB with a very good left foot. He held his own defensively and took set pieces when he played for S2. We only got a glimpse of him but he looks promising.

Apparently he played as an attacking midfielder for Akron in the college playoffs and did very well. He is almost certainly still a left back at the professional level but it is a good sign he can perform up the field against college competition.

2017: Will probably play at least another year at Akron but he is HGP eligible so he could be signed earlier.

DEFENDER: Shane Wiedt, Erie Commodores

Why: The University of Akron defender has formed such a solid partnership with Guillermo Lazcano that it's difficult to determine who's been more valuable in a back line that's permitted just two goals in six matches. Wiedt is a modern center back in his sheer athleticism, 6'3 frame and strong dose of nastiness; the former AFC Cleveland back's play is reminiscent of the old rugged Erie Admirals squads.

Honorable mention defenders: Jack Webber, Fort Pitt; Matthew McDyer, Fort Pitt; Jake Schindler, Rochester; Guillermo Lazcano, Erie; Chris Cvecko, AFC Cleveland.

 

FORWARD: Ezana Kahsay, Erie Commodores

Why: Finding a position has been tough for Kahsay, a native of Eritrea who played his high school soccer in the city of Buffalo. The supreme athlete with a fierce competitive streak got noticed and signed by superpower Akron, then spent the first three years of his college career making the transition from defense to midfield to forward.

As it turns out, Kahsay has finally found his form as a striker, leading the Great Lakes East in goals (six in just six games) and tormenting opposing defenses with his relentlessness and improved composure in front of goal. He tends to find the back of the net in bunches, too, scoring a brace against Dayton and then a hat-trick against Fort Pitt.
