Willie Clemons and Tre Ming’s former Thomas Men's Soccer Head Coach Chris Parsons reflected on the players performances this week at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Ming & Clemons
Clemons and Ming are former standout soccer players at Thomas College.
"I got chills watching them in those games, said Parsons. "To see them play against a team like Costa Rica, who's ranked 39th in the world rankings for FIFA to see Willie make an impact in that game was a great feeling."
Parsons coached both players between 2013 and 2016, and has been impressed with what he's seen from them in the tournament.
"Willie in my mind was the best player for Bermuda in all 3 matches other than the goalkeeper. Tre had minimal time, but when he went in, he did very well."
Bermuda managed just one win in the group stage, but is continuing to improve against international competition, with the help of players who made an impact in Maine.
"This is a showcase for a lot of the players in that tournament. For a player like Willie to be able to showcase himself at that level is awesome.
