Brendan Duffy, currently of the FC Copa Academy B00/01 National League team will be pursuing his dreams of playing College Soccer with a commitment to Muhlenberg College in the Fall of 2019. Brendan has played with the Academy since the age of 12 having the opportunity to experience a number of coaches who have all enjoyed working with him and sharing their knowledge as part of his development. Brendan has helped his team to numerous placements and Championships and a National Ranking as high as #6 in the country during his time with the Academy, while competing at some of the country’s elite showcase events including the Disney Showcase and Jefferson Cup.
Brendan was recently recognized as the 2019 Presidents Award recipient - the highest award given out each year to graduating seniors whose dedication and commitment to excellence best exemplify the values and mission of FC Copa Academy.
About his journey and commitment to Muhlenberg Brendan had this to say… “My time here at Copa has been the most memorable and fun years of my life. I’ve been here since I was 12 years old and there has not been a more loyal, helpful, and supportive club than F.C. Copa. I know that when I go off to Muhlenberg College next year that I’ll miss playing and competing with my teammates more than anything.”
Current B00/01 National League head coach Billy Englishby shares his thoughts on Brendan… “As a person Brendan Duffy is a man of high moral character and one of the most selfless people you will meet. As a player Brendan has always been a rock of stability in the goal, keeping us in many a game with a number of critical and highlight worthy saves. What a great ambassador for the values and culture of this Academy.”
Next year Brendan will be playing for Coach Sean Topping who is entering his eighteenth season at the helm for Muhlenberg Men’s soccer. Brendan will be looking to help the Mules compete in the Centennial Conference and a return to the NCAA’s.
We look forward to great things from Brendan, and wish him congratulations and the best of luck as he pursues his soccer career at the next level.
