JWU Women's Head Soccer Coach Eric Dobrzanski and his staff are excited to open up the program's 2018 recruiting class with the addition of two transfers, Midfielder Sawyer Hall from NCAA D2 Barry University, and Defender Tyler Einsmann from Daytona State College.
"We are extremely excited to kick off our 2018 recruiting class with the signing of Sawyer Hall and Tyler Einsmann," commented Coach Dobrzanski. "Both of these players bring experience to our program and will have an immediate impact on our success when they arrive."
Hall comes to JWU after two years at Barry University in Miami, Fla., the Bucs finished 2nd this season in Sunshine State Conference play. Hall is from Pembroke Pines, Fla. and graduated high school from Pines Charter where she was a four-year starter for Head Coach Carlos Velasquez. Hall helped lead the Jaguars to the state tournament as a senior, scoring twice in the regional final, and the team reached the state finals in 2013 and the semifinals in 2014. Hall was named Second-Team All-Broward County as a junior and senior and named Honorable Mention as a freshman and sophomore.
Coach Dobrzanski on Hall: "Sawyer is exactly the type of player we were looking for when we went out to find a midfielder for this 2018 class. She is extremely talented on the ball, with good vision of the field, ideas and distribution. We needed to bring in a midfielder that could come in and make an impact right away, and I know Sawyer will come in and do that. She is athletic and helps us on both sides of the ball, as she is a very good ball winner as well."
Einsmann comes to JWU after two years at Daytona State College, a nationally ranked junior college program in Daytona Beach, Fla. Einsmann is originally from Bradenton, Fla., where she graduated from IMG Academy. Einsmann started 14 games for Falcons and Head Coach Brittany Jones this season, and helped DSC go 12-2 overall and reach the Region 8 tournament final. The Falcons finished the season ranked 13th in the country. Einsmann now joins two other former DSC Falcons at JWU, Defender Caterina Yibirin and Midfielder Karen Rodriguez.
Coach Dobrzanski on Einsmann: "Tyler is an outside defender that will be a fantastic addition to our backline, as she can play right or left back. Tyler is coming from a high level junior college program, and has spent two seasons playing against the top teams in the country. She possesses all of the qualities we look for in an outside defender, as she is a technical player that looks to get into the attack. She is athletic and is a good 1v1 defender."
"We cannot wait for the Fall, as we are only starting to release our 2018 signees, and it is an extremely talented and deep class. This class will be made up of players that will come in and contribute right away along with others that will develop and be the future of this program, as we look to build a winning culture here at JWU. I really want to thank Sawyer and Tyler for their work throughout this process and their belief in what we are continuing to build here at JWU. These two players bring a lot to our program and we look forward to Fall 2018."
