HC student secures football scholarship
A 17-YEAR-OLD student of Harrison College is the 27th footballer from the Barbados Soccer Academy to gain a football scholarship.
Torian Went, who is in his final term at school, received a full scholarship to the University of Florida after delivering an outstanding performance at a number of Disney showcases in Florida last December.
The teenager, who will be leaving for Florida in a couple of months, said playing football was his main dream and being able to attain an education while doing that was a plus.
At a Press conference at Combermere School during a practice session on Saturday, the former Barbados Under-17 captain, who made two appearances for the national Under-23 squad last year, said the aim of the academy certainly paid off. (RG)
