Niccolo Dagnoni -- Student-Athlete of the Month for October

Niccolo Dagnoni -- Student-Athlete of the Month for October

Niccolo Dagnoni has been an offensive spark for the men’s soccer team during the month of September.  The native of Milan, Italy scored three goals and had three assists during the month, which led to two victories for Belmont.  Currently he leads the team in goals, assists, and shots on goal.  He also ranks among the top-five in the Southern Conference in those same categories.


What’s your favorite thing about Belmont?

Definitely the thing I like the most about people is the fact that everyone will be nice to you no matter what. When I first came here my freshman year (last year) everyone wanted to make sure that I was having a good time and I absolutely loved that.


If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why? 

I am going to get a tattoo of a tiger in December because I really admire the way tigers are in nature. It’s such a beautiful animal, I admire the way it can alternate from being very calm and very dangerous.


Who is your favorite account to follow on Instagram and why?

For sure Cristiano Ronaldo is the account that I follow the most on Instagram. He posts a lot regarding his athletic life, like training or healthy meals. Also I like that a good business man and posts about his business career too.


What’s your favorite Nashville restaurant and what’s your favorite food to eat there?

My favorite restaurant in Nashville is for sure “Bella Napoli” which is an Italian owned restaurant. Since its owned by Italians all products are authentic Italian and this makes the Margherita the best pizza in town.


What are you watching on Netflix/Amazon Prime/Hulu now?

At the moment I’m not watching any TV Show but my favorite is for sure “Money Heist”
