Golden Eagles Share PDL Experience In Thunder Bay
Aug. 15, 2012
MILWAUKEE -- Following in the footsteps other Golden Eagles men's soccer players whom have migrated north of the border, Paul Dillon, Sebastian Jansson and Axel Sjoberg chose to head to Thunder Bay, Ontario, this past summer to test their skills in the Premiere Development League.
Marquette assistant men's soccer coach Marcelo Santos, a former PDL player and coach for the Thunder Bay Chill, still has contacts with the club, which has helped with the placement of former MU players such as Anthony Colaizzi.
When the opportunity was presented to them, the trio jumped on the chance to experience a new culture, train and play with some of the best young talent from around the world, and hone skills that hopefully will pay dividends for head coach Louis Bennett and the Golden Eagles for the next few seasons.
