Editor’s note: With the 25th season of Major League Soccer upon us, this story is part of a New England Soccer Journal series with local players reflecting on the return of top-flight soccer to America.
The term “Wild West” is often used when discussing the early stages of Major League Soccer, and each inaugural player has stories that reflect that.
Bo Oshoniyi (Boston, Mass.), now the head coach of Dartmouth men’s soccer, is no different.
One that sticks out for Oshoniyi, a goalkeeper who won two Division 2 national championships while at Southern Connecticut State, involves training. Or rather the contrast between Ohio Stadium, where they’d play games, and practice during the 1996 season.
