“Spending 5 unbelievable years in America is the highlight of my life. Even now, I look back and think just how amazing it was to get an opportunity to play with and against some of the best players and teams, as well as getting an education. I embraced every moment and left with friends that became family. For me, my favourite aspect of going to America is the professionalism of the soccer and the accountability to which you are held. With the experience I have had, I aim to help future athletes become inspired and show them the opportunities that are available to them. There is nothing better than seeing someone achieve their dreams.”

FAVOURITE FORMER COLLEGE ATHLETE:

FAVOURITE MOMENT IN COLLEGE CAREER:

Playing for my first school Eastern Florida State, we had never previously made it to the NJCAA National Tournament. The first year we hosted the tournament we beat our rivals in the group stages and had to play the current champions at the time in the semi-finals. We were by large the underdogs as Tyler CC were expected to win the game easily. The score was 2-2 and in the last 2 seconds of the game we scored. As my teammate took a shot it went over the keepers head and landed in the net at the exact same time the buzzer went off. We went through to the finals and the goal also made ESPN. All of the fans ran on the pitch, along with coaching staff and entire squad – it was unbelievable.
