There’s a big secret being kept in the Borough of Brooklyn. A name to watch for. A potential soccer star from Jefferson High School, and his name is Victor Ogunwale. Ogunwale put his name on the map last season. As a junior, the young striker led the A Division with 31 goals. His contribution helped lead the Orange Wave to a strong playoff run. Now this young goal-scoring phenom has his sights on joining an international team in Europe. This past Sunday, he and many other youngsters from the Public School Athletic League’s Boys and Girls squad while on their week-long trip, Ogunwale seems motivated to make quite the impression on Spanish soil.
When asked about his views upon his trip to Spain Victor said, “I’m just looking forward to getting out on the field. I want to use this opportunity. I’m focused on myself to get the most of this chance”. Sounds like a poised young athlete.
Ogunwale has a bright future ahead of him. His talents thus far are impeccable. He has dribble ability to go along with his dominating style to score which should be a beneficiary to him while in Europe. He is determined to leave his mark at the international level. When he comes back to the States, Ogunwale has one thought in mind and that’s to bring a championship for Thomas Jefferson. “This year, I want to win a championship because I’ll be a senior. That’s my goal, it’s as simple as that.” With the positive mind-set he already has, Victor hopes his goal-scoring capability leads to a team recognizing his talents and a final championship run in his senior year. Go get ‘em Victor!
