February 5 was National Signing Day, the day when high school seniors officially sign a National Letter of Intent to play sports at the college/university level. We are proud to have 13 MVA student-athletes sign letters.
Students who signed include:
Sabrina Botran, Guatemala, Palm Beach Atlantic University
Kalena Iwashita, Japan, ASA College of Miami
Bernardo Gracindo, Brazil, Northeastern University
Weston King, USA, University of Louisville
Bryan Moreira, Ecuador, University of Indianapolis
"In these three years I have been here in the U.S. and at Montverde Academy, I have learned that diversity means a lot to me," said Iwashita. "I am happy that ASA values diversity and I feel that I am ready to play soccer at the next level because of the MVA team here."
Marc De Julio, USA, University of Lynchburg
Tyden Wilson, USA, Queens University
Tianyu "Jeffery" Wu, China, Washington State University
Ryan Ren, China, Salem State University

"It feels that everything I worked hard for led up to this moment," said Brown. "All the long traveling, late night practices, and games were all worth it."
