On the field, Dylan has been an integral part of the back line for the RSL AZ MLS NEXT 06 team recording 8 clean sheets in 17 matches including a clean sheet against the #2 team in MLS Next. His presence has helped maintain the best goals against average in the conference.
"He encompasses everything that an RSL-AZ top student-athlete should have," said Jordan Rideout, RSL AZ MLS Next 06 Head Coach. "He is an amazing person, an excellent student, and a top player."
