About Athlete

My goal is to combine my academic studies and soccer talent. I’m a very motivational guy and I am always looking forward to give my all in everything I do both on and off the field. I believe I have what it takes to be a great student and athlete.

What makes you different?

I am seen as a leader on the soccer pitch. I always gave 101% of me in the game, and I’m willing to go the extra mile for my teammates. When it comes to my GK skills, I believe I am a great aerial player, very communicative with my teammates, and great reflexes.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I want to compete in college because my goal is to be a good student and a great goalkeeper at the same time. Looking for the opportunity to go the extra mile both on the academics and on the soccer side. It’s always been a dream for me to play college soccer in the US.

College Goals?

I want to graduate with the highest GPA possible, hopefully Summa Cum Laude, and make it to the soccer draft.

Anything else we should know?

As a young catholic teenager, I would love to continue to practice my religion together with my academics and sport activities.
