Reggie Cannon isn’t the flashiest player, but he’s been a useful presence in the backline at every level of his professional career. Cannon was a Homegrown Player with FC Dallas in Major League Soccer before he moved over to Europe with Boavista in the Portuguese first division in 2020. In possession, Cannon doesn’t fly forward on the overlap (although he can get forward). Instead, he often joins the center backs to form a back three and provide defensive cover as either an auxiliary central defender or as a reserved right back.
