Duquesne soccer adding a special talent in Nathan Dragisich

Earlier this week, Pittsburgh Sports Now‘s Harry Psaros sat down with someone we’re pretty familiar with here at Pittsburgh Soccer Now — and someone that he’s pretty familiar with too – Nathan Dragisich.

We’ve followed Nathan’s career pretty closely here at Soccer Now, especially the past Fall, when he helped lead the West Allegheny boys soccer team to a PIAA title.

Harry has covered Pitt athletics for nearly two decades. Throughout the years, he’s developed close relationships with a large number of Pitt players and their parents. In this case, he found it to be unique that he interviewed a young student-athlete who’s father happened to be one of his closest friends.

Here’s some of what Harry had to say about Nathan and the Dragisich family.

Duquesne is adding more than a special soccer player, it’s adding a special family. Nathan’s father Brent (a former standout cross country runner at Duquesne), mother Malinda and siblings Johnny (a budding soccer star) and Tiffany (future gymnastics star) are like family to me.

Nathan Dragisich’s success has nothing to do with luck.

It’s exactly what when you combine a stellar work ethic, Malcom Gladwell’s’10,000 hours of practice’ and the love of an amazing family.
