“We had a huge step for our club and for our academy and that’s not going away, you are going to see more of that,” Dunivant says. “We have a great academy and we have a great area to pull players from and we have a lot of talent here. Ultimately, we have shown the pathway now.”
This offseason is no different from others as the evaluation of the Republic FC 2020 roster and of possible incoming players is well underway, Dunivant is clear on what the club is looking for.
“The number one thing we look at as a club is mentality," Dunivant stated, “We want guys who bring it every single day, they want to win, they are competitive. It annoys them to lose in warm-ups, it annoys them to lose on Saturday, it eats at their core. That’s the kind of mentality we want.”
Dunivant also mentioned some of the hardships from 2020 but was optimistic that Republic FC will come out of the offseason with a 2021 roster that fans are going to love and will entertain on the pitch.
