William Grady, a 6’1" goalkeeper from Centereach, NY, has been an essential component to the recent successes of the Dowling College Men’s Soccer team. The Golden Lions made school history when they brought home the first National Championship in Dowling College history.
Grady’s senior season during the 2006 National Championship run saw him finish with a 0.55 goals against averag and a .870 save percentage.
Grady helped the Golden Lions advance to the National Championship game as he made 11 stops against West Florida and saved the final penalty kick in the shootout. Grady’s play throughout the season helped the Golden Lions only give up 7 goals and shut out 14 different opponents. His final record on the season was 18-0-2, helping Dowling win a championship ring, and earning himself the honor of being named to the 2006 Daktronics First Team All-America.
