My name is Tommy DiVincent and I am a junior playing for Cedar Stars Bergen Academy in the MLS Next League. We ended the 2021 Spring season as the number one team in the Northeast Division, and I am the starting right-back.
I began my soccer career at the age of 6 playing for my local soccer club, RYSA Wildcats, before switching to World Class F.C. to advance my soccer development. While at World Class, I was fortunate enough to achieve success as back-to-back state champions in 2014 and 2015, to participate in the inaugural years of the NYCFC Youth League, and to play up an age group in the newly formed U12 boys age group for the USSDA. After playing one more year of DA at World Class, I decided that I wanted to continue my career in the DA so moved on to my current club, Cedar Stars Bergen Academy. I played two more years in DA at CSA before the league was terminated.
I participated in Varsity Winter and Varsity Spring High School Track my freshman and sophomore years and competed in the 800 meter, 1600 meter/1 mile, 4x400m, 4x800m and distance medley relay. I qualified for New Balance Nationals in the 800 meter and most recently competed in the NJSIAA State Meet of Champions.
My goal is to continue playing high-level soccer while pursuing an undergraduate degree. I am ultra-competitive and I am always eager to learn and improve. I will always be the hardest working person on the pitch. I see the value in working as a team and I am willing to forgo personal glory for the betterment of the team. I believe that I will be an asset to any soccer program.
