Congrats to Nick Biglin on signing his nation letter of intent to play Men’s soccer for the University of Kentucky today. Nick has been offered a full athletic scholarship to the University of Kentucky. He has been training relentlessly for the past two years with us here at ATFLI.
When we first met Nick a few years ago there was a large doubt in his mind weather or not he would be able to play college soccer let alone major division 1 Soccer.
Nick had just broken his leg during a soccer game and knew that the road to recovery would be a bumpy one. At first he thought that he would never be the same player he once was, but with our help and Nicks determination he far surpassed the soccer player he once was and became a force to be reckoned with on the pitch. We know that the University of Kentucky will be getting not only a fantastic soccer player but also an even better young man off the pitch. We wish Nick the best of luck as he moves forward onto the next chapter of his life……………
GO Wild Cats.
