Dillon Powers of Plano High School and Andromeda Soccer Club was named Gatorade National Boys Soccer Player of the Year for 2008-09.   Powers led Plano High School to the Class 5A Texas State Soccer Championship this spring scoring 16 goals and notching 24 assists on the season.  He also helped his Andromeda SC club team to a USYSA National Championship last year.

Dillon is very quiet, very unassuming, very shy off the field, but on the field, he's an impact player," said Gary Williamson, the North Texas State Soccer Olympic Development Program Director of Coaching. "His range of passing and his pass selection is spot on. He can get out of tight spaces. He's got a very powerful shot. He's just on a different level. His soccer IQ is up there along with his natural ability. Technically, tactically, physically and mentally, he's got the edge."

Dillon Powers will begin his college soccer career at Notre Dame next fall.
