Young Type Ones Meet College Athletes

I believe that soccer unites people all around the world. It skips racial boundaries, economical disparities, and language barriers. The ball doesn't care where you are from or how old you are.

How to Get to the University of Texas Rio Grand Valley

First of all, no matter where your journey begins, you will need a loooot of patience. Maybe even some food for the way.

Great Weekend in Texas: First Win on the Road!

Have you ever been to Texas? Me neither. Actually, now that I mentioned it, I have been there before. But I certainly try not to think about that one trip (when we lost 0:5 to Houston Baptist and I got sent off with a red card). Anyways, this time my trip to Texas was much better. … Continue reading Great Weekend in Texas: First Win on the Road!
