“I am very excited to announce that I have verbally committed to the University of the Pacific. I’m grateful for the opportunity to play Division 1 soccer at such a prestigious academic institution. After visiting the campus and meeting with the coaches and team, I’m confident in my decision and know it’s the perfect fit for me. Keith Coleman and Carmen Padilla have been great to work with and I can’t wait to play soccer under their direction at UOP!
I want to thank my parents and family for always being so supportive and helping me reach my dream. I would also like to thank my previous Boca coaches; Melissa Cavitt, who instilled a never-ending quest to be the best player I could be; Antonio Sutton, who inspired my crazy love for the game; and Berhane Anderberhan, who taught me to be a technical, team player.
I would also like to recognize and thank my new coach, Ron Benjamin, for believing in me and being invaluable in the last steps of this process. I’m very grateful for your efforts and can’t wait to compete with my new Placer U18 Red team!
Finally, thank you to my incredible teammates, past and present, for always pushing me to the next level, on and off the field. You guys are some of my best friends and I don’t know what I would do without you.”
