"Jordan Schwartz is the type of player that coaches dream about having on their team! His Professionalism, ability, communication and pure hunger to achieve his dreams was infectious throughout the squad. Jordan had a unique way of impacting the lives of everyone around him and the fact that he has bounced back after a horrific knee injury last season and now playing in the USL League 2 just shows how determined this young man is. Will hate to see him go, but I am extremely happy that I had the opportunity to work with him. FA Euro New York has just got their hands on a star!" - Quote from Inter Pro Academy Head Coach - Liam O'Brien

Dave Dessources joined Inter Orlando FC in August 2017.

 

Dessources, an incredibly strong and technically gifted player, smashed his way into the Inter Orlando Squad from day one and made sure to make his impact on the field. He was a vital part of the Inter Orlando 2018 UPSL Pro Premier Division winning side. 

 

"Dave is a beast! That is honestly the best way to describe him. He worked so hard to improve his abilities in training and his natural strength was incredible. He would hold off two defenders whilst still being able to keep possession of the ball and so somehow wriggle away and launch the attacks down the left. We are incredibly proud of Dave and hope he does well at Central Florida Panthers. He will always be part of the Inter Orlando family!" -Quote from Inter Pro Academy Head Coach - Liam O'Brien

Nate Hodges joined Inter Orlando FC in August 2017.

Hodges, an incredibly determined and motivated character, had a very hard journey before achieving his goal of getting signed by FCA 1 Darmstadt in Germany during Summer 2019. Nate had to overcome some very tough personal issues that had previously been affecting his focus and growth as a player and person. During his time with Inter Orlando Academy, Hodges was one of the driving forces of the team. His motivation and endless work rate to succeed was infectiously spread in every training session and this resulted in Nate being named Vice-Captain for the Spring 2019 Season.

After attending trials and being selected by the FCA 1 Darmstadt coaching staff, Hodges traveled to Germany for pre-season training camp in July 2019. Once in Germany, Hodges quickly impressed the coaches further with his endless hunger and focus. Hodges was named Captain of the U-23 Development Squad in July 2019.

 

"Out of all the Inter Orlando Academy players that we have worked with, I must admit that Nate Hodges had the harder journey to success! Unfortunately, his previous soccer experiences before Inter Orlando Academy were not positive ones, and Nate had to work twice as hard as the other players on the squad as he was battling those previous bad experiences as well as his own high expectations to succeed. Once we were able to help Nate understand that his talents were good enough, that was it! Nate excelled on the pitch, in the gym and became the natural leader we knew he was! I am extremely proud of his accomplishment, it is fully deserved and I could not be happier for him!" -Quote from Inter Pro Academy Head Coach - Liam O'Brien

Tyler Pletcher joined Inter Orlando FC in August 2017.

 

Pletcher, a phenomenal shot-stopper, joined Inter Orlando Squad after having a few years of no soccer at all. Pletcher had a torn ACL injury during his senior year of High School which forced him to not play College Soccer. Luckily for Inter Orlando Academy, Pletcher built up the courage to come back to the field and it was probably the best decision.

 

Pletcher was an immense wall throughout the 2 seasons he had with Inter Orlando and was vital in helping the club reach the first UPSL Central Florida title in 2018. Pletcher attended the FCA 1 Darmstadt trials in May 2019 and was selected by the coaching staff and offered a contract to join the U-23 Development Squad at Darmstadt.

"Tyler is a great player and even better person! His commitment and determination to succeed was awesome. It is difficult as a Goalkeeper to remain focused throughout the entire match, especially when you have players on the pitch with as much quality as we have at Inter Orlando. Tyler's ability and quality stood out in his trial and I am very pleased to see him sign with FCA 1 Darmstadt. I know the experience alone will help him improve his game and I will definitely be watching his progress from a far! "-Quote from Inter Pro Academy Head Coach - Liam O'Brien

Sanjay Karim joined Inter Orlando in August 2017. 

 

Karim, a very technical and talented player has a very unique story of how he came to play soccer. He barely played growing up and was not until his last few years of High School that he really started to take Soccer seriously. Karim left Inter Orlando Academy to attend George Town College in 2018.

Karim impressed greatly at the FCA 1 Darmstadt trials earlier this year and was offered a contract with the U-23 Squad

 

"Very proud of Sanjay for battling through and earning himself a Contract with FCA 1 Darmstadt. He is a special player and I am sure the experience and coaching that he will receive in Germany will only help his development further!" -Quote from Inter Pro Academy Head Coach - Liam O'Brien
