Trask on O'Neill: "Enda's physical and quality on the ball will help the back of the team. Coming from an MLS Academy (Colorado Rapids) where his training habits have been established by their Academy staff, we believe that he will fight for a starting spot this coming fall. Enda is a high-end soccer player and a very gifted student who will have a great chance to realize his goals at Wisconsin."
Tiemeyer on O'Neill: "Enda will provide our team with strong passing range from the back and a physical edginess in the tackle. His versatility will provide us with flexibility as Enda is very capable of playing as a wide back, center back or holding midfielder. His passion for the game is second to none and Enda will bring great insight to his fellow teammates."
Why Wisconsin? "Wisconsin has a quality soccer program that plays in an extremely strong conference, which is important to me as I want to play against the best in the country in order to further improve my game. Wisconsin also offers a quality education that makes it the perfect combination of both soccer and academics.
