FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Barry University standout soccer player Kendall Sealy will partake in the North American Soccer League combine on Friday, Feb. 1 through Feb. 3 at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
For Barry head coach Steve McCrath this is another great sign of a program that is in the upper echelon of the South Region and NCAA Division II.
“This is a great opportunity for (Kendall); it’s something he’s desired to do. I’m pleased that he has the opportunity for others to recognize whether he is a good fit,” McCrath said.
Sealy finished his four-year career tied for fifth in games played throughout program history with 73 caps and amassed over 4400 minutes. The Trinidad and Tobago native finished his senior year with two goals and four assists giving him 13 goals and 14 assists for his career.
“I’m excited; it’s great to have another Barry player earn an invite to the combine. It really shows the level of consistency of our program,” McCrath said.
Former Barclays Premier League defender and French international Pascal Chimbonda will join the group of more than 60 players aiming to impress coaches at the NASL Combine in Florida this weekend.
Last year nine players were signed by NASL teams, including former Buccaneer Mark Anderson who signed with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. Anderson went on to finish third in the league in goals scored and was named to the NASL Best XI Team at the end of the season.
This is the third straight season in which the Buccaneers have had a player in the NASL combine following their senior season, Sascha Koettig in 2011, Anderson last spring and Sealy this season.
The combine begins Feb. 1 through Sunday, Feb. 3 at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
