About Athlete

My objective with this abroad experience is to develop myself further as an athlete, as well as a person. I want to get out there, earn my number 1 spot, ace my academics and be of use for my team as well as for my classmates.

This I will achieve by pushing myself to be the hardest worker in the team as well as in classroom.

I am very competitive and can’t stand losing. I am a humble guy who doesn’t like people who think they run the team by them self, we are in it together so act like it.    



I only recorded stats since 2013/2014.

Within the 6 seasons I played 232 official games.

Games won: 118

Draws: 26

Losses: 88
