Anyone who played youth sports knows that obtaining a college scholarship is no small task.
While a certain skill set is required, it takes a village to propel young athletes into the collegiate ranks. Namely - a strong foundation at the club level.
Looking at the Orlando City SC Academy, that foundation is very much in place.
Entering into the fall of 2020, eight Orlando City Academy players have signed to play at the next level as part of the Club’s continued commitment to achieve a 100% college placement rate.
Four of those players will remain in the Orlando area with goalkeeper Tyler Lavigne, defender Brennon Neff and defender Juan Diego Ramos set to attend the University of Central Florida, while defender Mason Lamb will join the Tars at Rollins College.
