Humans of GSU: Dylan Swearengen

"I transferred to Governors State University for the small classroom sizes, where it’s easy to learn and get involved in the class discussions, but also for the new GSU soccer team which my brother and I were offered scholarships to play on. It’s the greatest feeling being part of the inaugural season, starting new traditions, and really putting our name out there. You want GSU to stun the crowds and the conference, so winning the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) Offensive Player of the Week was so rewarding. My brother and I put in a lot of work to get to this point and it’s great to see all that work getting noticed.

Playing soccer for GSU has really taught me that no matter how hard it gets, if you push and give it your all you can do anything you want. As my coach said, if you have grit to play you have to be willing to not just give 100 percent, but also get 1 percent better every time you do something."
