Silver scored seven goals and passed for seven assists through 18 games. The 2018 Class 6 Region D Player of the Year, Silver is rated as the nation’s No. 107 recruit in the Class of 2018 by TopDrawerSoccer.com. He entered the state tournament with 19 goals and 28 goals in his prep soccer career.
Silver has maintained a weighted 4.35 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a national letter of intent to play soccer on scholarship at the University of Notre Dame this fall.
He has donated his time as part of multiple community service initiatives through the National Honor Society. “Bryan is a technically gifted player, but I think what sets him apart from other players at this level is his knowledge of the game,” said Randy Wood, head coach of Madison High. “He knows where he needs to be on the field and he has great vision and awareness when he has the ball.”
