Jack Perrett recently secured a soccer scholarship to Tennessee Wesleyan College, Tennessee.
This week, as part of our "Class of 2013" series, we caught up with Jack to talk about his experiences choosing a scholarship and what his future holds:
1. What are you looking forward to most about starting your student-athlete life in the U.S?
The thing I'm looking forward to the most about becoming an athlete in the U.S is meeting new people from around the world. Also getting back into the regime of training and playing against unis/colleges from all around America.
2. How have you been preparing for your time in The States?
To prepare for the states I've been following a day by day training plan that will help me to improve my fitness level. I know that fitness is an essential part of playing soccer
out in America, so I want to make sure I'm prepared & ready for the challenge.
3. What has been the highlight of your time on the FirstPoint USA program?
There are a few highlights of my time on the FirstPoint USA
program, such as playing in the client games to get video footage for my profile. The main highlight was the Soccer Showcase in December where you got to show your skill in front of coaches that have flown over from America & also speaking to the coaches to get a better understanding of their program.
4. Were you happy with the offers you received, and what made you choose your college in the end?
I was extremely happy with the amount of offers that was made to me, by having so many offers it gave me many choices to pick from. I looked into every offer to see if it was the right soccer
program for me. The reason why I chose TWC
was because I felt the program suited me best and the coach was clear on his aims for the team in the upcoming season.
5. Would you recommend FirstPoint USA?
Yes, I would recommend FirstPoint USA
to anyone, they are a great company and they really helped me secure a scholarship.
6. What advice would you have for anyone considering a sports scholarship to the USA?
If you want to do it then my advice would be do it! It's a great opportunity to play at a high standard in the US.
We'd like to thank Jack for answering our questions, and wish him the best of luck in the USA!
