The World-Herald is counting down the 25 must-see athletes across all Creighton sports to help usher in CU's 2018-19 athletic season, which kicks off Aug. 19.
Soccer • Senior midfielder
Rydstrand is Creighton’s top returning point scorer — that’s largely based on his ability to create chances for others. He put one shot in the back of the net last year but had eight assists — tops on the team and tied for second in the Big East. He took nearly all of CU’s free kicks and corner kicks. He had a knack for guiding the ball into dangerous spots.
The Bluejays will need him to do more of that. They have to replace much of their attacking talent. It may take time to find continuity and consistency. Creighton will look to the Swede to set the tone.
