Journey to Extraordinary Series

William Cleary

At 15 years of age, William Cleary is on a journey to extraordinary.

Each ambitious athlete that comes to TOVO Academy Barcelona has a clear agenda. William is no different. Football is his passion and like so many other TOVO players, William recognizes the value of a living and training abroad.

“The TOVO Residence Program is amazing. I have the chance to play with kids from so many different places and backgrounds. Coach Beane’s knowledge of soccer combined with his excellent teaching skills has allowed me to see soccer in a whole new way. Seeing myself and others evolve into intelligent players has been a cool experience. I can’t wait to apply what I have learned in the years ahead.” – William Cleary

William’s father, Math Department Head at Loomis Chaffee School in Connecticut, has witnessed the transformation while visiting our residence program. “As parents, we could not be happier with William’s TOVO experience. He has pushed himself athletically and intellectually. This has been a memorable European adventure for him,” comments Joe.

William plans to return to Renbrook School and is in the player pool of the New England Revolution and US Soccer. Football and academics will surely lead him to a remarkable future.

William’s journey to extraordinary is just beginning.
