Dragons FC Sign Three Goalkeepers: Russ Klabough, Nico Corti & Remi Prieur
BDFC Shores Up Goaltending Position With Three Impressive Additions
Today, the Burlingame Dragons Football Club is happy to announce the signings of goalkeepers Russ Klabough, Nico Corti and Remi Prieur for the 2016 Premier Development League season. These additions, along with the signing of goalkeeper J.T. Marcinkowski in January, strengthen the depth at the goalkeeping position for the upcoming campaign.
Klabough played his collegiate soccer at California State University-Stanislaus under former Dragons Head Coach Dana Taylor. The 6’5, 215 lb. keeper played in 20 games in 2015, his senior season, posting a 0.94 goals against average as he helped lead his team to a 15-4-3 overall record and a first round appearance at the NCAA Division II Championships
For his efforts during his stellar senior season, Klabough was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America NCAA Division II Men’s Soccer All-West Region First Team, an award given to the best goalkeeper in NCAA Division II in the Western United States. The Sierra Vista, AZ native’s 7 solo shutouts guided his team to their 4th CCAA Championship Game in the last five seasons.
Corti plays his collegiate soccer for the National Champion Stanford Cardinal. The redshirt sophomore was in competition for the starting goalkeeper position until a preseason injury derailed his plans. After regaining his health, took the backup position and slowly worked his way back into playing shape.
The Brussels, Belgium native ended up playing in five matches during the season as his team went on a magical run to win the national title. Now fully healthy, Corti is excited about competing for the starting position with the Dragons this summer.
Prieur attended Saint Mary’s (CA) this past season. The freshman saw no game action this season as he acclimated himself to the demands of the college season. The San Ramon, CA native played his club soccer for the San Jose Earthquakes USSDA Academy team, where he served as the team captain. He was listed as the 8th rated prospect in Northern California coming out of California High School.
