99 Boys Olympic Development Player Attends Winter Inter-Regional
Eric Secor, 99B, represented NTX ODP as a player on the 2014 99B Region III ODP team at the Winter Inter-Regional Event held at IMG in Bradenton, Fla., Dec. 18-21. The competition included teams from all four ODP Regions. Region III finished at the top of the standings, with two wins and one draw.
For Eric, the opportunity to play with Region III coaches and teammates again was something he could not pass up. He was thrilled to score a goal on the second day of the tournament against Region IV.
“It was an amazing trip!" he says. "Everyone I met, from coaches to players, were great. The opportunity to play against such strong talent was challenging and pushed my soccer skills. It was also exciting to see so many college coaches watching us play. I learned a lot from my coaches and teammates that will make me a better player.”
Overall, Eric was excited to represent North Texas ODP and Region III. He is looking forward to the Region III Camp this summer and seeing many of his friends from the trip again.
