FRISCO – With one month under wrap of college soccer, let's take a look at the top five FC Dallas Academy graduates who are best performing for their Division I soccer teams.
1. Brandon Servania (Fr. - Wake Forest University)
Midfielder - 8 GP, 2 GS, 2 G, 7A
Servania was an outstanding player for the FCD Academy over the years. A U-16 National Champion and participant in U.S. Youth National Team call-up, the midfielder has made a quick and impactful transition into college soccer. As a freshman, Servania has already become an integral part of Wake Forest's lineup with eight matches played since August, helping the team to a 7-1 record. The Dallas-native has made a name for himself in the box score with two goals and seven assists this season, most notably during a 5-1 rout against Rugers University in August setting up his teammates twice, while scoring a brace himself.
2. Ben Hale (Fr. - Furman University)
Goalkeeper - 7 GP, 7 GS, S 17, 4 CL
In 2016, Ben Hale was unable to play his freshman season after tearing his ACL in FCD's U-18 National Championship game that July, but is excelling in his first season of collegiate action so far in 2017. Now, back at his best, Hale has been instrumental for Furman, playing all seven games this season keeping four shutouts with 17 saves, helping his team to an impressive 6-1 record.
3. Jordan Cano (Sr. - Southern Methodist University)
Defender - 7 GP, 7 GS, 3 A, 4 CL
The defender has been vital in the back line for SMU this year. Since the start of the season, Cano has started in each of his team’s matches, with the team posting a 6-1 record out of the gate. While the senior is having an impressive season defensively with four shutouts, he is also contributing in attack with three assists.
4. Aldo Quevedo (Fr. - Yale University)
Forward - 6 GP, 4 GS, 1 G, 1A
A U-16 National Champion with FC Dallas, the young forward has started brightly into his first season of college soccer. Quevedo has played six games for Yale, starting four of those, with the team standing 2-4 early in the season. The Dallas-native played a key role in his side’s 3-0 win against Howard earlier this season with one goal and assist.
5. Corey Cantor (Sr. - Oral Roberts University)
Midfielder - 6 GP, 6 GS, 2G, 1A
Having played in six games this season starting in each one, Cantor has been an important attacking piece for his side with two goals and one assist so far. Most recently, the midfielder scored two goals against Bacone College, with the equalizer coming off a 40-yard effort as ORU went on to win the match, 4-2.
