We are proud of the environment we have created within the program. Our players have the chance to thrive within it, develop and have an opportunity to continue at the professional level." Dally is the third student-athlete in Quinnipiac history to be selected to participate in the combine, joining Graciano Brito ('08) and Freddy Hall ('10). "I am very excited to be part of the MLS combine," Dally said. "It's something I've imagined in my head for years now, and to see it unfold it front of me is truly a blessing. I am trying to stay in the moment and enjoy this, but I also understand it is not the time to become complacent. Going to the MLS combine is a truly exciting step in my career, and I am excited to see what is next." During the combine, players will be allowed to showcase their talents in front of representatives from all 24 MLS clubs. All invited players will be eligible for selection in the 2019 SuperDraft, which will take place on Friday, Jan. 11 in Chicago's McCormick Place at 12:00 p.m. Dally recorded 16 points and 15 assists in his career with the Bobcats, playing in 78 career games - which ranks tied for No. 5 in program history.

"During my time at Quinnipiac, I was faced with many challenges that forced me to grow both as a player and as a person… My teammates, my coaches and everyone at Quinnipiac has helped put me in a great position to earn recognition from the MLS."
