Massimo Ferrin settling into his 2nd chance at Syracuse

first_img Published on September 16, 2018 at 10:36 pm Contact Eric: [email protected] | @esblack34 Massimo Ferrin knew he wanted to play for Syracuse from the moment he stepped on campus. Playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference had always been a goal of his, and SU was the closest ACC school to his hometown of Mississauga, Ontario.The forward was offered a spot on the SU roster but not a full financial scholarship. Instead, he opted to play at Alabama-Birmingham.“Things didn’t exactly work out perfectly,” Ferrin said. “… little bit disappointing on both sides, because it was my first choice to come here.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Two years later, Ferrin starts for the team he missed out on after high school, following his transfer from UAB this summer. In two years with the Blazers, he tallied eight goals and two assists and was named Alabama-Birmingham’s 2017 Most Valuable Player. It wasn’t the start to his college career he’d hoped for, but Ferrin’s finally starting for the Orange (3-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast), and his teammates all think his best soccer is ahead of him.“He’s a very good player, he’s gonna be a very important part of us moving forward,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “But I also think he can be better for us.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMassimo notched an assist on Syracuse’s season-opening road trip and scored his first goal for the Orange in its ACC-opener against Notre Dame. He’s tied for third on the team in shots and is producing early on in a similar role as SU midfielder Hugo Delhommelle played last season.“When you’re a really good player you can kind of adapt to anything,” Raposo said. “So whether it was at UAB, at Vaughan, or here, I knew he was gonna do well for us.”Raposo, Ferrin, and Kamal Miller all played at Vaughan, a soccer club based out of Ontario. Miller’s a year older, so from ages 14 to 16 Ferrin competed with older players to team with him, which allowed Ferrin to showcase his skill set in front of college coaches. Raposo, meanwhile, is younger than Ferrin, so he played with the older group while Ferrin played with players his own age.Blessing Emole | Digital Design EditorThe three of them make up a group of seven Canadian players, all from the Toronto area. Tajon Buchanan and Simon Triantafillou played on Sigma FC, a club in Ferrin’s hometown of Mississauga.“He was one of the few players from that (younger) team that got called up to participate in games with us,” Miller said. “So a lot of the guys my age got to know Mass and helped him become the player he is today.”For the other 19 players on the roster, Ferrin was an unknown. A lot of his teammates thought he was more of an introvert when they first met him, Miller said. Earlier in the season, Ferrin kept to himself and played video games in his room. That has changed though, as SU is now more than a month into play since the start of preseason and Ferrin is adjusting to the team.Off the field, Ferrin has quickly become a favorite among his teammates, new and old. He’s one of the most outspoken players against running, dramatically exaggerating his sighs for comedic effect when told to run laps. Other times, he’ll jokingly mutter “oh my God,” under his breath, just loud enough for his teammates to hear and laugh at.“A lot of the guys (thought) at first, ‘Oh he doesn’t talk much,’” Miller said. “But now, everyone knows.”On the field, it’s only a matter of time before they see his best.“He just has to get comfortable,” said Miller, “and then he lets it all loose.”last_img read more

KEIRON Cunningham reflected on an unhappy Easter p

first_imgKEIRON Cunningham reflected on an unhappy Easter period following his side’s 28-20 defeat to Hull FC on Monday.“It’s not been good and it could have been a lot different,” he said. “We were always going to pick up injuries at some point in the season but we don’t seem to be having our share of luck with it.“We have had a good start to the season, so I can’t complain, and I feel that the squad of players I am running with is more than adequate to win the games we have been involved in.“We put in a really good showing at Wigan but I am deeply disappointed with a few individuals in the side today.“I thought a lot of players busted their bodies for me but there are a few individuals in our side that can thank themselves very lucky we have a few injuries at the moment and maybe we are forced that they have to play in the next few weeks.“We remain second as a few results fell our way today. We will keep fighting and hopefully get bodies back next week and improve from there.”He continued: “It would be easy for me to say the Easter period is the worst concept in the world as we have lost two games – but I could be sat here saying we have won two and I would still think it is the worst concept in the world. You talk about player welfare and then you tear it up and throw it out of the window. I don’t want to sound bitter but I have said that from playing to coaching.“It is ludicrous in the modern game that back up this quickly. We looked tired, as did Hull at times, but I still believe that even without the halves and the back rowers we have out that we have enough here to win that game.”Keiron said Jon Wilkin will hopefully return next week whilst Travis Burns might have a chance in the next couple of weeks.“Luke Walsh isn’t far too,” he continued. “He should get the ok from the specialist, that is on the horizon. Jonny Lomax has gone for the year, Joe Greenwood is three or four months away (broken leg) and Atelea Vea (shoulder) is the same.“It would have been nice for young Jack (Ashworth) and Ricky (Bailey) to make their debuts with a side in a bit of form and under better circumstances. They will improve and get better as they play more rugby down the track.“Ricky is a full back, but I don’t think he is ready to play full back in Super League so we gave him a shot on the wing.“I didn’t want him to have a lasting memory of his debut to be that bad.“I gave him a half and then switched things around and brought on some people who I thought would do better.“They let us down a lot more than Ricky did. I’m not bashing the kids, it was couple of my senior players who deeply deeply let this team down.”last_img read more
