Edson's Story

Desde que soy un niño sueño con ser un futbolista profesional. Siempre he jugado futbol siempre he querido jugar como mi tio Felix Crisanto quien es el jugador del club deportivo motagua de la cuidad de Tegucigalpa Honduras. Me motivo a ser como el por que el siempre a tenido las ganas de juagar el se esforzaba para jugar futbol profesional y lo logro. Y yo quisiera llegar a juagar futbol profesional de la mls por eso dia y noche sueño con jugar futbol no dejo de jugar me preocupo los días que pasan y no juego futbol . Soccer es muy importante en mi vida siempre quiero esforzarme para ser mejor futbolista todos los días.

Ever since I was a kid, I have dreamt of being a professional soccer player. I have played soccer my entire life, and I hope to play professional soccer like my uncle - Felix Cristiano who is a player on the club team for Tegucigalpa Honduras. I am inspired by my uncle, who always wanted to play professional soccer and was able to reach his goal. I want to play professional soccer for MLS and that is why day and night, I dedicate myself to playing the sport. I even worry the days that I don't get to play. Soccer is very important in my life and I am eager to get the opportunity to become a better player every day.

A Note from Ms. Malloy, Edson's Teacher

Edson is an extremely gifted soccer player whose skills should be developed in a setting that is not his high school gym class. With limited resources at the school for sports, Edson has been unable to pursue his passion for soccer since moving from Honduras to the U.S. last year. Edson's diligence and perseverance are revealed to me daily, as he progresses in learning English and succeeds academically. He would take advantage of every opportunity Red Bull New York Residential Soccer Camp presented him. I also believe that the camp would open up doors to him that so far, have remained closed.
