IMG Academy has fielded a USL Premier Development League (PDL) team for than 10 years. Some of the team's alumni are helping lead the way for their team at this year's NCAA men's soccer tournament, being held around the country before the tournament converges in Hoover, Ala. for semifinals play later this month. In the first round, the University of Maryland - Baltimore County and University of South Florida teams survived first-round scares, winning their games on penalty kicks.
IMG Academy PDL alumni on the USF roster include: Lucas Baldin, Brandon Curriston, Dallas Jaye, Mike Mitchell and Sebastien Thuriere.
Notably, Dallas Jaye notched his first tournament win after making two saves and directing a USF defense that secured its sixth shutout of the season.
PDL alumni on the UMBC roster include: Liam Paddock and Milo Kapor.
The IMG Academy PDL team consists primarily of alumni from the IMG Academy soccer program and is coached by IMG Academy soccer program Director Scott Dean. The IMG Academy PDL team serves as a continuing commitment to the development of IMG Academy soccer program players after the completion of their high school career.
