My name is Michael Owens, I’m currently 20 years old and I’m looking forward to transfer next semester to a new university…
I currently started my first year in August on Concordia University, Seward NE.
I’m American/ Peruvian and I have played soccer my whole life… I’m left footed but usually use both right and left.
Coming to study and become an student athlete wasn’t in my plans because I’ve always wanted to play professional soccer.
I made my professional debut when I was 17 years old in the First Divison Professional league in Peru and formed part of the Peru U20 National Team…
I was plannin to keep on the route I was but I realized that I would have better opportunities here in the Us and think this is a good place to challenge me to become a better player and make it professional here.
I was new and didn’t know much about the college soccer level here so I decided to attend to Concordia but then I found out that there are more competitive leagues and I’m currently looking forward to transfer and play in one of those leagues.
