ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- NavySports.com recently sat down with Navy sophomore goalkeeper Aaron Dupere to find out more about the men's soccer player from Royal Palm Beach, Fla. Dupere had a sensational freshman season, leading the Patriot League in GAA (0.78), while ranking third on the Navy single-season GAA list. His 0.78 GAA was the third-best nationally a year ago by a freshman. A true outdoorsman, Dupere is a fan of Bear Grylls (Man vs. Wild) and his favorite summer vacation is camping with his family.
