Stopping balls.

That’s what Dillen Myers excelled at during his time at Union High School.

And that’s what earned him a scholarship at Harris-Stowe State University.

Myers signed to play soccer and baseball at Harris-Stowe.

“It’s not very often that someone gets to play two sports in college,” Myers said. “It’s pretty sweet.”

A goalkeeper on the soccer pitch and a catcher on the baseball field, Myers has gotten used to keeping the ball in front of him.

“You get hurt a lot,” Myers said. “You’ve just got to be a wall either way.”

Myers feels being a soccer goalie is a little tougher.

“You’ve got to cover more area than catching,” Myers said.

And in high school, Myers had to cover a lot of area while facing a lot of shots.

“Being on a soccer team for high school, you normally get a lot of shots,” Myers said. “I was fifth in state last year in saves. I got a lot of practice.”

Myers said facing all of those shots has made him a better goalkeeper.

“That just makes you better,” Dillen said. “I’m glad I got those shots. I wouldn’t be this far along without seeing all those shots.”

Myers has some specific school goals.

“I’m going to major in math science technology,” Myers said. “If I need more schooling after that, I’ll probably transfer somewhere and get an engineering degree.”

Myers said he had a wonderful time at Union High School.

“I love the sports program,” Myers said. “I played four years in soccer and three years in baseball. I’m glad I did it.”
