My FC Copa Coaches helped me become the player I am today by teaching me that anything you want in life is attainable through hard work. To be a learner on and off the field
Share your thoughts and experiences on the collegiate recruitment process with FC Copa Academy and how Copa assisted you and your family.
First of all, you must perform and work hard on and off the pitch. College Night was a big success for me and my family. Meeting with Coach David, Coach Roberto & Coach Lori helped me and gave me the knowledge and assisted me in contacting coaches.
Share any advice you would have for future FC Copa Academy athletes going through the collegiate recruitment process:
Work hard on and off the pitch, keep your grades up so when you look at schools you won’t have any academic issues, make a lot of videos and only attend the id camps of the schools you are interested in going to & have fun and be yourself on the pitch you never know who’s watching.
