What are your most memorable moments or experiences at FC Copa Academy?
The most memorable moment at Copa was when I realized that this soccer academy was not just my soccer academy, it was my family.
How did FC Copa Academy help you become the player you are today?
The FC Copa coaching staff taught me to always push myself, always work hard and to never give up on missed opportunities.
How did FC Copa Academy help you get into the college program you will be attending?
Coach Yazo has been great throughout my whole recruitment process. I started looking at this college my senior year after they came to one of my high school games. Whenever I had a question about playing in college, Coach Yazo was there to answer it.
Share your thoughts and experiences on the collegiate recruitment process with FC Copa.
FC Copa made my recruitment process easy. They helped me from start to finish. If I ever had a question and I would see any one of the Copa staff on or off the field, they would always make time to answer any questions or concerns I had.
What advice would you give to future FC Copa Academy athletes going through the collegiate recruitment process?
Athletes, the one thing that Coach Yazo taught me was to always remember you only have one first impression for the college coaches on the field so always push yourself and give it your all. Don't be nervous when they come to see you play, just be yourself.
