MOUNT VERNON—Junior mid-fielder Manase Irakoze signed a semi-professional contract with Georgia Revolution National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) on Sunday, March 25 preceding team tryouts held on the Rockdale Youth Soccerplex in Conyers, Ga. More than 40 ambitious hopefuls played their hearts out demonstrating their skills and stamina. Along with 12 other top players chosen to join the Professional Development League (PDL), Manase’s aggressive offense and defensive skills distinguished him from among the rest.  

      

“I feel so excited about this achievement,” commented Manase. “I was not planning to compete against the big guys and was surprised when the head coach nominated me. My family is so proud that I’m taking such a big step in my future.”

This achievement marks the third in the young athlete’s budding career. This past season, he earned the Most Improved Player award for his excellent character, intense dedication, and impressive work ethic. He was also nominated Most Aggressive Player at Middle Georgia College two years prior. His perseverance and dedication in both his sport and his education keep him a rising star.  

According to fellow teammate, Leandro Pinto, “Manase is an amazing person. He has great endurance and skills and is a unique player. He always says ‘the sky is my limit.’ Just by saying that, he can easily motivate the whole team.”

Head Men’s Soccer Coach Mike Dye praised Manase’s success saying, “I wish I had three more years to coach a player like Manase. I am excited that he had a successful trial and made the team. He is a smart player with a lot of potential, and having him play with and against many of the top players in the region will only allow him to take his game to the next level.”
