Player Update

A good deal of our collegiate players are having pretty solid starts to their seasons. Here’s a round-up:

– There are four former Blitzers suiting up for Canisius: Ryan Schroen and Derek Maier, along with goalkeepers Eric DeHond and Kareem Gray (pictured above). Schroen, Gray and Maier have played every game for the Griffs, who are off to a program-best 5-0-2 start. Both Schroen and Gray have started every game, while Kareem has posted a 1.21 goals against average. DeHond, a transfer from Houghton, fits in neatly behind the elder Gray.

— Jason Gaylord suited up for the Blitzers before obtaining a bad injury during the 2009 season. Now a junior at Old Dominion University, the defender has started all five games for No. 5 in the nation Old Dominion University. The Monarchs will be climbing the rankings after beating No. 2 Creighton, at Creighton, 2-1 on Friday evening. Read more about Jason here.

— Chris Walter’s Hartwick Hawks are 2-1-2. The sophomore has a goal and has started every match.

— Jake Rinow has started all four contests for Cornell, whose record stands unblemished at 4-0. The back is part of a defensive unit that has only allowed one goal.

— Mike Reidy has a goal and an assist for Colgate, who is off to a 1-4-2 start. Mike was Patriot League player of the week to open the season.

— Kendell McFayden scored thrice in 13 appearances for the Rochester Rhinos, including a brace to open his efforts and a goal in the Rhinos’ lone playoff match.

— Playing in the Finnish second division, Daniel Stevens has scored 11 goals for the third-place Palloseura Kemi Kings.

— Buffalo State recently picked up its first win and winger C.J. Scirto has two goals and an assist for the Bengals.

— Marist — and FC Buffalo — captain Joshua Faga has played in all six games for 2-3-1 Red Foxes, taking seven shots on goal.

— Five former FCB players are with Coach K at Medaille. Frankie Valente has a goal for the Mavs and Pablo Ordonez has two assists. Peter Duerden, Austin Tom and Matt Goldwater are also featuring for Medaille.

— Loyola is 3-1-1 and freshman goalkeeper Jordan Dilapo is learning under goalie coach Zach Thornton and a stellar keeper Thurman Van Riper.

— The Bonnies are still searching for their first win, but Steven Carcaterro has started every game for St. Bonaventure.

    So what is your point? Do you want to say that FC Buffalo created these players. Of course, not they grew up in different countries and different clubs.
    FC Buffalo should be focused on players from here. In addition, they should give opportunities to play for all players, not only coach’s former players
