Gerberich MAAC

EDISON, N.J. – Niagara Purple Eagles freshman goalkeeper Joel Gerberich was named the MAAC Wilson Rookie of the Week after wins over Big 4 rivals Buffalo and St. Bonaventure last weekend.

He opened the two-game set with a three-save performance through 90 minutes of a 2-1 victory over Buffalo in the home opener. The lone goal allowed came on a penalty kick. He followed up with a six-save second half against St. Bonaventure that allowed his squad to come away with a 1-0 win in overtime. The win over the Bonnies was his first collegiate shutout. In total, he played over 182 minutes and made nine saves for a .900 save percentage and a 0.49 goals against average.

“Joel has been solid for us all year both making saves and dealing with crosses,” head coach Eric Barnes said after the shutout on Sunday. “His stats haven’t done him justice. He was an integral part in earning the win on Friday as well as keeping the clean sheet today. He has a very bright future.”

The Purple Eagles are back in action this Sunday when they host Detroit at 2:00 p.m. at Niagara Field.

Attention to detail and working hard are just a couple of traits that Nolan Dyko carries with him every day.

Dyko displays a humble personality that any coach would welcome on a sports team.

His intelligence and talent helped him graduate from Revere High School and have him on course for a bright future at the University of Cincinnati.

He plans to major in engineering in college, and will do so after being selected the Akron Beacon Journal Male Scholar Athlete of the Year for the 2013-2014 school year

“Nolan’s time management has really been a key part of his success,” said his mother, Colleen Dyko. “Nolan is quiet and unassuming, but when you get him on the field, he is very competitive.”

Dyko, a National Honor Society member, compiled a 3.84 grade-point average. He scored a 33 on his ACT and helped Revere win the Division II boys soccer state championship as a senior.

Revere Athletic Administrator Bill Schumacher and coaches Jason Cottrell and Sandor Jakab nominated Dyko for the award.

“It is amazing to see the changes over the years, especially in the last several years from entering high school as a young kid to fully grown,” said his father, Mark Dyko. “He has changed so much and accomplished so much in the past few years.”

Nolan Dyko, who is 6-foot-4 and 195 pounds, scored 13 goals as a senior starter. He netted a goal in the state final against Columbus Bishop Watterson, the state semifinal against Bay Village Bay and the regional final against Hunting Valley University School.

“I thought that we earned all the wins we got and the state championship,” Dyko said. “We definitely earned that from all the hard work we put in during the preseason, and then the season. We tried our hardest and gave our best effort, and it all paid off.”

Dyko started for three years on the Minutemen soccer team as a forward and midfielder, and contributed on the Division II state runner-up team as a sophomore.

“Nolan was a key leader and role model for the team this past fall,” said Jakab, Revere’s boys soccer coach. “He scored the game-winning goal in the regional championship and sealed the championship scoring Revere’s second goal in the state final.

“Additionally, he provided many key plays throughout the season to lead the Minutemen to an undefeated 21-0-2 season. His composure, determination and willingness to step forward and lead the team were keys to our successful season. Not only is he successful on the field, he is as determined in the classroom.”

Dyko played baseball at Revere, and was also active at school in several clubs and in the community.

“Nolan walked into tryouts his sophomore season standing 6-foot-3, almost five inches taller than he was as a freshman,” said Cottrell, Revere’s baseball coach. “As I watched him throw off a mound, I knew he was going to make an impact on the varsity level.”

Cottrell said Dyko was Revere’s No. 3 starting pitcher as a sophomore, and then this season as a senior he “blossomed into a true No. 1 pitcher for our program.”

Dyko went 3-1 as a senior with a 1.38 earned run average and 37 strikeouts in 40 innings.

“Besides his on-the-field achievements, Nolan is strong in the classroom as well,” Cottrell said. “He is going to study engineering in college and took a rigorous honors and AP schedule of classes.”

Dyko praised his teachers and coaches for promoting time-management skills. He also appreciates the support he receives from his family, which includes his parents and sister, Alanna, 21, who is a student at Ohio State University after graduating from Revere. Colleen Dyko graduated from St. Vincent-St. Mary and works as a manager of information systems programming at Third Federal Savings Bank in Cleveland. Mark Dyko graduated from West Holmes, and has a bachelor’s and master’s from the University of Akron and a doctorate from Ohio State University. He works as an engineering manager with Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems in Akron (formerly Goodyear Aerospace).

Nolan Dyko, who throws left and bats right, said his favorite class at Revere was Advanced Placement Physics, and that class along with AP Calculus and AP Chemistry have helped him prepare to study mechanical engineering and play club soccer at UC.

“It is going to be a big jump going to college,” Dyko said. “I know I will have a lot more things to do and a lot more responsibilities to take over. Hopefully I can manage it.”
