The Miami FC announced today that former Indy Eleven midfielder Dylan Mares has officially signed with the club.

“Dylan is an extremely skilled midfielder with years of experience in this league,” Miami FC Technical Director Mauro Pederzoli sadi. “We are looking forward to what he will bring to this team in 2017.”

Mares, a Zionville, Indiana native, was a standout at the high school and youth club levels, winning the 2009 IHSAA state championship with Zionsville Community High School.

He would go on to play for top collegiate programs at the University of Louisville and Indiana University before signing with Indy Eleven in 2014.

Mares spent three successful seasons with Indy as a key member of the club’s midfield. In 2016, Mares scored five goals and registered six assists while helping Indy secure the Spring Season Championship, followed by a second place finish in the Combined Season and the club’s first-ever postseason appearance. He is Indy’s all-time leader in assists (10) and is second in scoring (15).

"My family and I are very excited about the opportunity to come to Miami," Mares said. "I'm ready to get down there, start training, and meeting my new teammates. This is a very challenging league but the goal is to win the championship and I hope I can help my team in a positive way to accomplish that."
