He helped lead his club to become league champions with 5 goals and 9 assists, appearing in all matches.
“I expect to bring great sportsmanship to Cajun SC, also my knowledge of what i have gained from my past coaches. I am looking to help Cajun SC win the 2016/2017 GCPL. Hopefully I have a good season with them and show my skills and I hope that I get seen by a coach who is scouting players. I just want to keep improving as a player and hopefully I will have a great career.”
