April 4, 2019-Nyla Frazier, who plays for the Olympic Development Program (ODP) of the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA), recently starred with the East Region 2003 Girls Team while on a winter tour of Costa Rica.
The report from Central America stated that “Nyla Frazier and Amanda Graziano were definitely the stars of the first half with strong dribbling and passing skills. Nyla showed great defensive technique and gave Codea Alajuela’s forwards a very hard time; she was definitely a nightmare for them due to her strong and committed will.“
Nyla received the Most Valuable Player Award after the game between the East Region and Codea Alajuela. Besides ODP, the Manhattanite has also starred for club team Manhattan Timbers.
Nyla is one of the top players of Eastern New York ODP, which has produced many great players including Crystal Dunn, currently playing on both the NWSL champion NC Courage and the United States Women’s National Team.
