"I would like to thank the teams, club coaches, referees, volunteers, Frontier Conference clubs and the college coaches who attended the first annual showcase event at our complex. The club has a continued responsibility to provide a variety of showcase opportunities for all the players which are attended by college coaching staff. Providing a first class event hosted on our home facilities enables the players to be recruited over a four day period without having to extend our travel schedule. Based upon the overwhelming positive feedback, I look forward to welcoming everybody back and further expanding this event in 2022." Dave Dengerink, Academy Director
"What an incredible showcase this weekend at our home facilities. My son playing teams from across the nation in front of college coaches is the opportunity he has been looking to get. The Dynamo coaches are taking these players to the next level in terms of college exposure." Troy Tice, Dynamo Youth Parent
"I am very thankful that I had the opportunity in the MLK Frontier Showcase during all the adversity the nation is going through. I got the opportunity to showcase the skills that I have developed in the last year to the college coaches that took part in the event. I want to thank the whole Dynamo organization for making this happen." JJ Abusada, U19 Dynamo Unidos Player
