The latest guest on New England Soccer Journal’s “The Goal” podcast is getting the rare opportunity to play professional soccer in the state he grew up in.
Hartford Athletic 25-year-old forward Rashawn Dally developed as a player in Connecticut after moving there from Jamaica when he was 10-years-old. He then went on to star collegiately at Quinnipiac. So far in the 2022 season, the 6-foot-2 Dally has appeared in eight matches for Hartford and has a goal to his credit.
He was selected 49th overall by FC Cincinnati in the 2019 MLS SuperDraft after finishing his college career. He played sixteen matches over two seasons for the former USL side, while also spending two stints on loan, one with Memphis 901 FC in 2019 and another with Las Vegas Lights in 2020. He re-signed with Memphis for the 2021 season.
Dally joined host Matt Langone on the podcast to discuss how his season with the Athletic is going in familiar Connecticut, and his personal journey in the sport.
