STORY

My obsession with the beautiful game began at four and has become my dominant focus since. Over the last six years, I have grown and developed into an impactful playmaker and team leader under the guidance of seasoned coaches from DA/MLS Next academies. With 20-30 hours a week training, I have been selected for five USYNT events and camps. I regularly play 1-2 years up while being my team's top goal contributor each year (1.90/game 2021/2022 season). My style of play is similar to Kevin De Bruyne. 360 field vision and perfectly weighted connections, combined with sharp technical skills create abundent scoring opportunities for teammates. I presently play pro soccer for Columbus Crew 2 with my Pro debut at 16 years old on 8/14/2022. It would be an incredible honor to represent the US in the WC or Olympics.
