Committee leader and CEO of Dream Sports Group, Shannon Riley, says “the athletes that were selected have exemplified great leadership skills on and off the field, and have stood out as leading performers in each position. We believe that these are the next stars of the game, and we want to recognize them for their outstanding achievements and help them get to the next level.”

"Cruz possesses a unique blend of finesse and ferocity. His ability to read plays unfolds like a masterclass in defensive strategy. He's not just a defender; he's a disruptor, a force of nature that wreaks havoc in the backfield. What sets him apart is his physicality. He hits like a sledgehammer. Off the field, Daniel is a quiet storm. He lets his actions on the gridiron do the talking ,a testament to the spirit of his hometown, the Bronx. We are excited to see him display his talents in Arlington, TX!"

We received over 10,000 nominations and he is 1 of 360 student athletes from across the nation selected. Dream Sports Group congratulates him on this prestigious honor and once in a lifetime opportunity.
