Tresham College student Ryan Kenyon has won a scholarship at one of the USA’s top sports colleges to play football.
Ryan, 19 from Kettering, has been studying at Tresham College since 2016, as part of their successful Football Academy. To ensure students achieve their potential Tresham College invites sports agencies such as Future Elite to its campus, where Ryan was spotted.
Having attended a trial of over 150 talented football players, Ryan was ranked ‘Five Star’ and won a scholarship to Georgia Military College, one of the top ten sports colleges in the USA.
Midfielder Ryan has enjoyed a successful football career in the UK playing for Kettering Town first team as well as qualifying for the upcoming National Championships in 2019 with the Tresham College team:
“Football has always been my passion and there are great opportunities in the USA where soccer is increasing in popularity. I have won a scholarship for a two year Foundation Degree at Georgia and hope to carry onto an Honours Degree. All whilst playing for their soccer team, which has been doing very well in the American leagues,” said Ryan.
Tresham College Head Coach Paul Curtis, an ex-professional footballer himself, said:
“We like to make sure our students are given every chance to progress, both with their academic studies and football careers. This is a fantastic achievement by Ryan and it has inspired several other of our students to also look at the possibilities in the USA.”
Ryan will head to Georgia in July this year. Tresham College has a successful Sports Academy offering young stars of football, rugby, golf, boxing and netball the chance to develop their talents.
