JACK AND MIKEY OFF TO GERMANY

Before successfully making this transition Jack Reuter joined Coach Attila Nyiri’s program at the age of 13 and for four years has made the trip from Cortland to Hopewell Junction five at time six times a week. Jack’s dedication has earned him a constant place in coach Nyiri’s team but his hard work, devotion to the coach and the program, the trust and discipline in his work ethic has earned him the right to be selected as one of the players transferring to FC Singen 04 and starting this season in Germany.
Miguel (Mikey) Dominguez is another player who has joined Mr. Attila Nyiri’s program at the age of 13 and then became a loyal adherent to the club and its system of development. Before Mr. Dominguez joined the program he has played and tried several programs but found none conducive to his play and skill level but the guidance provided by Coach Nyiri and his staff as well as the program itself with it’s established soccer teaching method and system of played proved enough for both parents and player to stay and flourish within. Mikey as Jack worked very diligently and has earned the right and approval from coach Nyiri to be the other player selected to transfer to Germany and embark on the beginnings of a new footballing life in Europe.
LRSA would like to thank the players for their continued support for our club and wish them the best of luck in their future exploits both on and off the field.
