Dylan's Story … I am from Greenville, NC and played and served as captain for the Greenville Stars for 8 years. I played one season Super-Y with Wilmington Hammerheads. I also played for South Central High School where I was twice selected All-Conference, MVP, and captain.

I played in the North Carolina State Games High School Showcase and my team played in the finals that went to penalty kicks, we won 4-3 and as goalkeeper, I saved 2. Lees McRae sent me mail right afterward, and I ended up here.
