The Class of 2023 carries some personal significance for Dartmouth head coach Bo Oshoniyi (Boston, Mass.), largely because it’s the first one he gets to shape. Of its eight players, he recruited seven himself, representing a continued step past the legacy of former head coach Chad Riley.
In many ways, the Big Green are still thought of as the team Riley helped elevate, bringing the Ivy League program to four straight NCAA tournaments from 2014-17. But with Riley at Notre Dame, his alma mater, Dartmouth is slowly molding into Oshoniyi’s vision.
To put it lightly, Oshoniyi, a two-time All-American goalkeeper and two-time national champion at Div. 2 program Southern Connecticut State, is excited by that opportunity.
