|Before the Nor'easters: Invited to U18 National Team Camp|
|Ocean City Nor'easters|
"I had the chance to see Nicky play this year for the 1st time since he was really young down at Starfinders over the Christmas Break. I knew he was a highly touted recruit out of High School who had US National Team experience, but within 10-15 min of training, I knew this was a kid that we had to feature in our flat back four. He is athletic, strong, good on the ball, fast, and versatile. He can interchange to a degree with Dolezal from Penn in the CB and RB spots without us losing a beat. His experience in the Big East this past season and previous years with Reading will bode well with the young guys we are bringing in."
The Junior defender from Syracuse will be very comfortable playing in the Nor’easters bright orange away jersey this summer. Nicholas began his college career at Caldwell College and after his Freshman year transferred to Syracuse. A physically strong and quick defender with the awareness of a great defender Nicholas played 9 games starting 8 of them for the Orange. Nicholas Bibbs was justly called up to the U18 national team training camp. It was a disappointing year for Syracuse who finished 3-12-1 overall but it will be treated as a great learning experience, just as Nicholas will treat the PDL summer as a great learning experience as he takes another step forwards towards a pro career.
