Bermuda’s Detre Bell Named All-State Player

November 16, 2015

Bermuda footballer Detre Bell has been selected as an All-State player, joining 40 of the top high school footballers in the United States’ fall playing states on the roster for the fifth annual High School All-American Game on December 5 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The honour marks only the latest for Mr. Bell, who was also selected to the Western New England Preparatory School Soccer Association All-Star and Select Teams, as well as the New England Preparatory School Soccer Association Junior All-Star Team, and was named as an All-State player by the Connecticut Soccer Coaches Association earlier this year.

A spokesperson for the High School All-American Game said, “Forty of the nation’s elite boy’s high school soccer players from fall playing states will take part in the fifth Annual High School All-American Game on December 5, 2015 in Raleigh, NC.”

“The players selected are seniors who have finished their high school careers and represent their high school teams during the fall season. These players have achieved many regional and national awards and will attend some of the top universities across the country.”

Mr. Bell has played for North Village and has also for the Valencia team. He was selected to the Bermuda National Team at their inception and has stayed on the roster since, while also serving as the U17 Bermuda National Team goalkeeper.

Head coach Owen Finberg, who will also participate in the High School All-American Game, previously said, “Detre is a talented goalkeeper and one with great potential. We are continually pushing him to achieve his best in the classroom and on the field and know that the best is yet to come for Detre.”
