Dylan Teves is new Seattle Sounders reinforcement

The Seattle Sounders continue to build their squad for a new season of the mls, and in the last few hours the board confirmed the arrival of Dylan Teves, a young promise that was formed in the University of Washington.

«We are excited to add Dylan to the team as our 19th hometown player,» he said. Garth Lagerwey, general manager and president of football for the Sounders, in a statement released Tuesday.

Along the same lines, Lagerway highlighted: “Being a finalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy in a team that reached the men’s soccer championship this year, he showed that he is a good talent and we are looking forward to having him in training camp soon.”

Teves, just 21 years old, joins for the 2022 MLS season with options to extend the bond until 2025. The footballer comes from the University of Washington, where he concluded a four-year career.

The Sounders set their eyes on the Hawaiian native thanks to his great productions during the 2021 MAC Hermann Trophy dispute, in which he scored 12 goals and provided eight assists. However, his good performance was not enough to lift the title, since his team fell in the national final of Division 1 of the NCAA before the Clemson University.

With this addition, Seattle now has eight local players on its roster heading into the 2022 competition year.

Notably, Teves initially joined the Seattle academy in 2015 with their U-15 team, in which he played 12 games for Tacoma Defiance (then Sounders FC 2) while also serving for the academy.

«Dylan is a tremendous player as he demonstrated during his time at UW,» senior vice president of football and athletic director Craig Waibel said in a statement.
