“I am incredibly blessed to announce my commitment to play soccer at UC San Diego in 2018. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to pursue my academic goals at this top university while living in beautiful La Jolla. I look forward to playing for Coach Jon Pascale and can’t wait to make a positive impact at UC San Diego as a player, teammate, and student.
I would not be where I am today without the endless support from my family, friends, teammates, and coaches. Thank you to my family – my biggest fans – for their unconditional love which allows me to become the best athlete, student, and person possible. Thank you to my friends for understanding when I can’t go out because I have soccer. And thank you to my teammates for working hard and supporting each other, which resulted in many impressive wins and everlasting memories. Each and every one of you will always have a special place in my heart.
Placer United has developed me into the player I am today. Thank you to Paul O’Brien for giving me the opportunity and developing me as an outside back. Thank you to Matt Scammacca and Jason Gantt for helping me improve as a soccer player and pushing me each day. A huge thank you to Matt McDougall for believing in me, supporting my goals, and guiding me through this entire process. And lastly, a special thank you to my very first coach from Granite Bay, Coach Chris Altobell, who helped establish my love of soccer since I was five years old and taught me to be RELENTLESS and to never give up!
Go Tritons!”— Zach Wong
