Congratulations to Upper 90 College client Martin Ibarreche on signing his NLI with St. Mary's University Men's Soccer , San Antonio, Texas (NCAA D2, Heartland Conference)!
I first met Martin and Dad in Singapore (where he completed high school) during one of my very first college soccer camps at Singapore American School almost 4 years ago now. Martin is an amazing young guy, great student and a very talented young footballer. That first meeting he impressed me considerably.
Martin will be looking to study Business, Architecture or Engineering at St. Mary's University. St Mary's has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Best Small Colleges in America by Niche. Martin will continue to excel academically in a challenging environment.
Martin will continue to ply his trade under the tenured guidance of Matt Barnes, Johnny Clifford & Isaac Sanchez. Martin can play many roles across the park as a Midfielder, Center Back or Striker. At UWC South East Asia he was an integral part of the SEASAC Varsity Squad and in 2014 and 2015 was recognized as MVP of the SEASAC tournament. He played first team football for Singapore Cricket Club - SCC NFL. Martin had also trialed with Stoke City, Pumas UNAM and Club America in Mexico.
Super excited for Martin, who will be joining our Aussie recruit Gerard Roebuck at St. Mary's this coming Fall!
