Men's Prep Talk soccer alumni in NCAA D2 & D3

You never know where #PrepTalkAlumni might turn up.

Many products of Section 6 and the Monsignor Martin Association's high school soccer programs stay local, filling out the rosters of the area's abundance of non-NCAA Division I schools. Others wind up at places a little tougher to find on a map - like Thiel, Skidmore, Clarks Summit and Oberlin, to name a few.

Here's our 2017 rundown of all #PrepTalkAlumni playing either NCAA Division II or III soccer. If we missed someone, please let us know in the comments or by emailing btsujimoto@buffnews.com.

Which high school has churned out the most active college players in this list? Here's a hint: It's the same as last year. Answer at the very bottom. And since connectivity is pretty important to us, we listed each player's most recent Buffalo & District Soccer League team, when applicable.
