About Athlete

My main goal is to achieve what I always dreamed for, playing soccer, and having my international diploma. That’s why I want to leave my country. To start studying, training, and playing soccer every day in a high level. I’ve been working for this since 2017, I’m more than ready to go for it!

Additional sporting info

Biggest strengths within my game are my speed, my good technique when it come to playing out from the back, my header when I’m under pressure from the opponent, and as my first position is center back, my capacity of supporting my teammates, order and encourage the team.

Personal Best

- Beep test: 16.2
- Won the Gatorade player on 2018 (soccer camp One Sports Chile).
- Won the defender player of the season on my last year of high school.

What makes you different?

What makes me different from others is that I always give everything to achieve my goals in life. Staying in Chile would be like giving up for me because you can’t do both things at the same time (Soccer/college). This is what I’ve been working since 2017, and I’m more than ready to achieve every goal I have in the USA.

Why do you want to compete in college?

Since I was a kid, my dream was to play in a professional soccer team, but I never wanted to stop with my studies. That’s why I want to go to the USA, to keep playing soccer every day in a high level and to get my international diploma.

College Goals?

Being a leader on the team, adding a lot of minutes inside the field since my freshman year, and winning the conference. In academic themes, approving every course in my four years there, and then I want to take an MBA or something like that. And the most important thing, making a family with brothers from all around the world.
