What They're Saying: Matt Miazga

“Since I was 13 coming up through this system, the dream for every kid in the academy was to make it to the first team, to make it professionally. ... Once I started training with the first team when I was 16, I thought I could compete with them and make an impact. I knew I could make the next step. Then when I was 17, I started to get even more opportunities to play with the reserves and train with the first team.”

-- Matt Miazga, who turned 20 last month, has made 20 appearances (18 starts) this season for the Red Bulls. (MLSSoccer.com)
