Sekou

There’s this little voice in my head that tells me “You know… EVERYONE thinks their kid has got what it takes. You’re no different…”

Yes. Very true, but how crazy would it be to not recognize this amazing opportunity that Sekou was selected for and how foolish would we be as a parents if we didn’t exhaust all of our options in order to make this dream a reality! He trains so hard and continues to challenge himself to improve his skill. It’s something in him that can’t be taught, and we couldn’t be prouder of this guy.

Early on we knew that our son, Sekou Mathews, had a natural athletic ability beyond his years.  As a toddler Sekou sat in the bleachers watching (studying) his older brother religiously at practices and games, so once he was old enough to sign up and play in (any) sports, he undoubtedly excelled and dominated.  His heart and passion surpass his physical stature.  His speed and agility are his strengths.  His talent is undeniable.  At the age of 10, he surprised us when he made the decision to quit football, basketball & track to focus all of his time, energy, and his heart into soccer.  He is now 12 and his commitment to the sport is most evident into the soccer player he is evolving into, and we are so proud of him.  His ultimate goal is to become a pro soccer player one day and as hungry as he is, we believe he will get there.

In July, Sekou attended 1 of the 33 FC Barcelona official soccer camps offered in the US where FCB Coaches trained and evaluated 5000+ players.  Recently, we were notified by FCB that SEKOU WAS SELECTED TO TRAIN IN BARCELONA, SPAIN in November!!!  This is an invite-only program where he will participate in an advanced, intensive training program offered to very few players around the world.  He will train at same fields used by Messi, compete in friendly-games vs. Spanish soccer academies, attend FC Barcelona home games, and bond with other players from all over the country who also share the same love of soccer. 

If you are financially able, please consider donating towards this experience of a lifetime for Sekou!   Money raised would go to the cost of the program (accommodations & meals included) and airfare.  ANY amount, no matter how small, will help achieve our goal and is GREATLY APPRECIATED.  Thank you for supporting and believing in our Sekou!!!  He’s so talented, smart, and just an all-around good kid.  He truly deserves this.

 
With love and appreciation,
Liza & Trevino
