Former national youth team defender Dwight Ceballo is one of two international defenders who will line up for the University of Connecticut in this upcoming American NSCA season.
Ceballo is a former St Anthony’s college player and was named the Secondary Schools League top defender in 2010 as well as league “MVP” in 2011. The other international defender on the Huskies roster is Jamaican Sergio Campbell.
Both players have been active in preseason with the UCONN side. UCONN are ranked No. 4 in the NSCA Preseason poll after finishing the 2011 season at 19-3-3 and advancing to the NCAA quarterfinals.
UConn was recently selected as the preseason favorite in the BIG EAST Blue Division. Ceballo joins a list of past and present national players to have gone through the ranks at UCONN including Brent Rahim, Julius James and Darin Lewis among others.
