I am proud to announce I will be playing Division 1 soccer at the University of California Riverside this upcoming fall of 2016. From the moment I stepped foot on the beautiful Southern California campus, I knew that it would be a great fit for me. I am looking forward to playing for my head/goalkeeper coach, Nat Gonzalez, for the next four years of my soccer career. Being a part of the San Juan ECNL program for the past two years has truly shaped who I am as a soccer player. I would like to thank my goalkeeper coach Sanaldo Carvalho for always having faith in me and pushing me every day to better myself on and off the field. I would also like to express my gratitude to my coaches Erin Sharpe and Tony Perez for always believing in me as a player and teaching me about competition, mental strength, and overcoming obstacles. I have been so lucky to have parents who have always supported me in following my dreams and who have done everything in their power to make those dreams a reality. Thank you dad for always being my loudest and most loyal fan on the sideline and thank you mom for always being so understanding after I’ve had a tough game. Thank you both for your unwavering support and for being my best friends. I am so excited to be able to represent San Juan Soccer Club as I continue my soccer career at the University of California Riverside. Go Highlanders!
