Duran's Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League (CJSL) team was a finalist in the 2019 Challenge Cup, the last time the competition was played.
“Duran’s teammates, the coaching staff and the club as a whole are delighted with this award. Duran is a great teammate who gives his defenders confidence, but most importantly, he has a strong work ethic which has allowed him to keep improving over time,” explained SC Gjøa Nordveit coach Anthony Brockbank. “His development under the guidance of our superb goalkeeper coach Dawid Ditrich has been significant. So, for me, this award is recognition of the effort he has put in and as a club, it is great when hard work pays off.”
The Eastern New York Save of the Year has been sent to US Youth Soccer for their consideration as National Save of the Year.
