Ubuntu Football: Embracing the Dream

Alex, a dominant striker who enjoys Chance the Rapper, fishing, and playing play station, is still most excited about the soccer.

“I know it’s a basic answer,” he laughed, “but I know we are going to be playing in very good facilities, playing against professional academies, so that’s obviously very exciting. I’ve always wanted to play at the highest level I can, so the fact that we’re going to be competing against strong teams is something I’m looking forward to,” he said.

After Northwood, Alex hoped to continue his studies in a university, and ultimately, to sign a professional contract. Beyond soccer, Alex wants to work for a company that is dedicated to helping other people.


Since the completion of his post-grad year at the Northwood School, Alex has chased his dream of continuing his studies and his play to the next level.

After numerous conversations around recruiting and university throughout the spring, Alex has taken his talents to Hanover, New Hampshire to join the Big Green of Dartmouth College, a private Ivy League university.

“Getting into Dartmouth is definitely a big highlight of my life. I would never have thought I’d be able to go to such an amazing school, so getting in was massive for me and my family,” Alex says. “My experience at Dartmouth has been incredible so far. The campus is beautiful, and the people are friendly and very motivated.”

Looking to help the Big Green get back to Ivy League Championship form, Alex is a 6’2″ forward with a presence up top. He is working hard on and off the field, continuing to adjust to the demand in the classroom. With a dream fueling his days, he is expectant for the rest of his career at the Division I level.
