SOME FORWARD THINKING
Barnstonworth Premier, CSI striker Nazon named CUNYAC player of the year at 34
In a major coup for Cosmopolitan Soccer League Over-30 powerhouse Barnstonworth Premier, burly forward Nedgy Nazon has been named City University of New York Athletic Conference men’s soccer player of the year after an outstanding season for the College of Staten Island.
It’s the 34-year-old senior’s second CUNYAC player of the year honor. He first won the award in 1998 before leaving college. Nazon returned to school this year and was stellar in leading the conference with 16 goals in 17 games, averaging almost a strike per game.
“Nedgy has been a team leader for us in more ways than one,” said CSI head coach John Tardy. “He is a natural scorer and our younger players have looked to him for big plays. I think it speaks to the player he is to be able to come back the way he has and have the type of impact on the conference that he has had. It shows how smart and how dedicated to the sport that he is.”
Nazon graduates from CSI this semester with a degree in economics. But he’s certainly not economical when it comes to scoring goals.
