Blinn’s Fevrier-Sildor, Farrell, And Chance Sign With Four-Year Universities

Stefan Fevrier-Sildor, Josh Farrell, and Jadiel Chance made their commitments official Tuesday. 

“It’s our job to get these players to the four-year level,” Blinn head coach Michael McBride said. “All three of these young men have gotten it done on and off the field; they all made the academic honor roll, and they truly epitomize what it means to be a student-athlete. It’s wonderful to see them take their skills to four-year schools.”

Fevrier-Sildor, a third-year sophomore forward from Fort Myers, Fla., signed with Division I Winthrop University, a member of the Big South Conference located in Rock Hill, S.C.  

When McBride took the reins of the Blinn soccer programs in 2019, Fevrier-Sildor joined the Buccaneers as the coach’s first recruit. Fevrier-Sildor has since left his mark on the program as he leaves tied for the school record in career goals. His 22 goals matched Farit Ha’s mark (2018-2020). Fevrier-Sildor, who played in 49 games for the Bucs, also was a Region XIV All-Region selection. 

“The statistics speak for themselves,” McBride said. “Stefan was a tremendous player who carried the team at times. I don’t think you can replace a player like Stefan. 

“He will not only do well at the Division I level, he’s going to do really well. He’ll be a handful for some of the elite teams of Division I soccer.”

Farrell, a Cypress, Texas, product, is committed to Trevecca Nazarene University, an NJCAA Division II affiliate. The freshman defender made 19 starts (20 total games) for Blinn in his lone season, dishing out four assists while on the field. 

Farrell came to Blinn following a run in the Major League Soccer Next program, a premier club level system in the United States. 

“We were blown away by Josh’s ability from the start, and he earned a starting spot on our team pretty much from the very beginning,” McBride said. “He played every minute of every game because it was impossible to take him off the field. 

“He’s going to be a big part of what Trevecca Nazarene does over the next couple of years and I’m excited to see it.”

Chance will join NAIA program Talladega College (Talladega, Ala.). The goalkeeper joined the team in January and had not yet appeared for the Buccaneers. Chance, from Kingstown, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, has already reached the professional ranks and recently was called up to play for his country’s national team in the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) Gold Cup. Following his participation in the CONCACAF games, Chance will join Talladega. 

“We found him a home and he’s competing at the world level, and we’re proud of that,” McBride said. “Since Jadiel’s arrival, he’s been a breath of fresh air. He’s worked really hard, trained really hard, and he’s also done really well academically. We know he’s going to make a big splash at Talladega.” 

The Buccaneers finished 11-7-2 overall with a 7-6-1 region record last season and reached the first round of the NJCAA Gulf South District Tournament.  

Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 42 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
