Quotables from the Coach:
On the returnees:
"Amiri Manzoor is a good motivator for the team. Manzoor and Victor Campos have been with the team the entire summer and they have worked hard to improve both as student-athletes and as soccer players. They came into the summer to make a difference and they have the skills to do that. After last season, they both got a taste of what it is like to achieve success at the next level. DeAndre Gordon (2018 Region XV Player of the Year) is also a good ambassador for the school."
On the incoming student-athletes:
"I believe that all the incoming players coming to ASA can compete against any institutions in the US."
"On the coaching staff:
"We have 2 volunteer coaches: Jourel Hyppolite and Jasurbek Tursunboyev. Hyppolite played for me back at Essex College and will handle developmental skill training. Tursunboyev is a former goalkeeper for the Avengers and will handle both goalkeeping and defense."
Expectations for the season:
"I expect our teams to be amongst the top four in the district."
