Holland, Pa. native Nyk Sessock became yet another YSC Academy grad to turn pro when he recently signed with Inter Miami II in MLS Next Pro.
Sessock, who returned to Indiana for a final season of eligibility and was on a Hoosiers team that came one win short of a national title, joins two other former Philadelphia Union Academy players in the Miami organization – Shanyder Borgelin and CJ dos Santos. Inter Miami’s director of scouting, Mark Prizant, also worked previously in the Union Academy, and Garrison Draper, Inter Miami’s high performance director, worked previously for the Union first team staff after a stint working in the team’s academy.
Sessock played with the Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals before joining the Philadelphia Union Academy, where he was a regular starter up through the U19 level and was part of the Bethlehem Steel FC setup before leaving for college. He initially attended Pitt but transferred to Indiana after two seasons. He finished with 102 appearances across his five seasons in college, 65 of those for the Hoosiers.
Sessock was part of the 2018 graduating class at YSC Academy, which included defender and recent Louisville City FC signing Ramzi Qawasmy, current Union homegrown Jeremy Rafanello, former Union homegrown Anthony Fontana and Las Vegas Lights midfielder/defender Issa Rayyan.
