Congratulations to Harrison Curran on his Division II signing with Northern Michigan University. Harry played at De Pere for Coach Derek Rhodes until the age of 14. At age 15 he left the club to pursue playing in the National Premier League.
At age 18 Harry has returned to De Pere Select. Harry, Coach Derek Rhodes and the rest of the u19 boys will compete in the Midwest Regional League this summer.
Harry will play at NMU in the Superior Dome. Fun fact: the Superior Dome ...is the largest wooden structure in the world. The Wildcats are led by former Green Bay Head Coach David Poggi.
Curran will be enrolled in NMU’s nursing program beginning August 2018. Good luck Harry!
Congrats Hailee Sanford on becoming a Pioneer! Haillee came to the club in 2016 as a transfer student from Las Vegas, NV. She has been coached by Eric Gebhard 2016, Brock Messner 2017 and Drew Rhodes 2018 on the 2000/2001 Midwest Regional Team. Sanford is also the starting GK for the De Pere Redbirds.
Hailee's personality brings people together. She has played just about every position on the field. Although she started at Goalkeeper she had to cover at defense due to in...juries. Later she found a knack for scoring goals that moved her up top. When she is not making a save, delivering a brutal tackle or dropping bombs on the opponents goal she can be found joking with her teammates or engaging in a bit of trash talk with her opponents.
Hailee will be playing midfield at Platteville while studying Forensic Sciences. She hopes to one day work in the CSI field.
Technical Director Dusty Rhodes is in Philly learning from the very best at The United Soccer Coaches Convention. Last night Dusty attended a session by Manchester United Coaches. We can’t wait to see the new training methods he brings back for De Pere Select Coaches:
