Thank you to all the coaches that have taken the time to reach out to me as a potential recruit for their program. I have decided to sign with Illinois College in Jacksonville Illinois. I appreciate all the love and support that I received from family and friends during this process. I look forward to reporting in the fall and working with my new teammates in pursuit of a NCAA D3 National Championship!
I have represented Football Federation American Samoa Youth National Teams at the U17, U20, and U23 levels. At Benson Middle School I was an Honors student and a member of the WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) program. I have played competitive soccer on a travel team the past 9 years. I am currently attending Buena HS and will be a part of the graduating Class of 2020. My short term goals are to finish my senior year of high school strong academically and to help lead my team to the Az State tournament in 5A. I am currently searching for a university where I can continue my academics and continue to develop on the field as well. I hope to join a college program that is working towards a National Championship, and I will also continue woking towards making the senior Men's National for American Samoa. I have over 200 hours the past 3 years volunteering in my community coaching and mentoring youth players in the U6 and U8 age groups. My passion for the game does not end with my individual development. I love teaching the next generation about the game of soccer. I work as hard off the soccer pitch as I do on it. I will do whatever it takes to make my team better and will always lead by example.
