A big honor today for Pitt men’s soccer freshman Dominic Reiter as he was named the 2019-20 Gatorade Pennsylvania Boys Soccer Player of the Year. By winning this award, Reiter is a finalist for the Gatorade National Boys Soccer Player of the Year award, which will be announced later in June.
Reiter attended Quaker Valley High School and enrolled early to Pitt in January. In his final season with Quakers soccer team, Reiter collected 55 goals and 24 assists for the season. Reiter helped lead Quaker Valley to a 24-2 and a berth in the Class 2A state championship game.
Along with being named the Gatorade Player of the Year, Reiter was also named the WPIAL Player of the Year for the Tribune Review and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“It feels great to win this award and I am thankful for the coaches and teammates who made this possible,” said Reiter. “But now, I am focused on how I can contribute at Pitt and better the team in any way I can.”
2019 was a monumental season for the Pitt men’s soccer team as they earned their first at-large berth to the NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship since 1965 and won their first ever NCAA Tournament game, defeating Lehigh, 2-0.
