Without IAFA, I would never have been able to fulfill my dream of going from a member of the Italian Junior National American Football Team to attending college in the US and playing college football. They believed in me, my academic and athletic abilities, since day one. Thanks to them, I had the opportunity to go to Butte Community College to begin my academic and football career. After two years at Butte College as a honor student and the support from IAFA, I earned a scholarship to the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota. This experience has already been life-changing for my family and me
I started to play American football in Italy with the ultimate goal to compete at the College level and get a degree. The coaches at IAFA helped me achieve my goals of attending a college in the US and playing College football. After my experience with the Junior National team, IAFA helped me with the recruiting process turning my dream into reality. I had a huge opportunity to play for Butte College, one of the powerhouses of Junior colleges in California. At Butte, I was able to complete my associate degree and graduate with honors. IAFA assisted me throughout the whole process at Butte which allowed me to get to the next level. Furthermore, I was strongly supported by IAFA in the transferring process after Junior college, which can be overwhelming especially for international athletes. Thanks to IAFA, I had the opportunity to join the Sacramento State Hornets and be a part of a great athletic and academic program. My dream is still alive and growing thanks to all their help and support.
