Following the May 1 senior college commitment deadline, several seniors have indicated where they will be attending college through wearing merchandise around campus, adding the schools to their Instagram bios, and signing the senior banner in the atrium. On Friday, May 5, two mens’ soccer players indicated they would be playing soccer at the collegiate level.

Pol Marza ‘23 will play soccer at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona, where he will study aerospace engineering. Kawan Borba ‘23 will play soccer at UT Dallas (UTD) and study engineering.

“I’m happy to commit to UTD because it’s a school where I can major in engineering, which is what I love, and play soccer at the college level,” Borba said. “I’m happy to have my signing day after school because my parents, friends, coaches, and everyone is going to be there and we’re going to celebrate. I’m very excited and I can’t wait.”

In addition to these accomplishments, both players also wracked up several individual and team awards this year. Borba earned the 25-6A overall MVP award, and Marza received the first-team all-district award. Additionally, the team won first in the district and advanced to the playoffs.

“I’m really excited for Kawan and Pol to play college soccer,” Rahul Kuthiala ‘25 said. “We’re really going to miss them here.”

Both players gave speeches at their signing ceremony, and Coach Chris Hellums followed with a speech of his own, reflecting on the achievements of both players and wishing them luck next year. Friends, family, and coaches cheered as both players concluded their speeches and signed their letters of intent.
