3 QUESTIONS WITH RIACH

Who is your biggest soccer influence and why?

Ross Barkley inspires me because he a driven, committed player that has risen through Everton FC's youth academy and has been a part of the first team squad since an early age.

Do you have an idol or hero?

Nelson Mandela because he inspired millions of people, including myself, through his determination and understanding of human nature.

Why did you select Yale?

Because I will be able to pursue incredible academic opportunities in an environment that will also allow me to continue my soccer development. There are many universities that may offer a similar experience, but I believe that Yale offers an experience that is distinct from all other universities. Yale's residential college system provides a true sense of unity on campus."

Coach Stannard On Riach: "Cameron comes from a very well respected Development Academy, Everton FC Westchester. Having spent some time in different countries, Cameron has a very good soccer pedigree and reads and understands the game at a pretty high level already.  He is a soccer junkie and constantly trains and watches the game consistently.  Cameron's father was a rugby player so I know Cameron is a tough and competitive young man that will bring good intensity and edge on a daily basis to push himself and others."
