UMFK football player Leon Braveboy plays against the USA national team

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) – A University of Maine Fort Kent men’s soccer player was on the field recently against the United States Men’s National Team. Leon Braveboy wore the Grenada national team uniform when they faced USA in a Nations League game in Texas.

Leon Braveboy: “My heart was racing, but my coach told me to go out there and enjoy the game as usual. I will go out there, do my best and help our team. The American team is better than us.

Do you view every experience like this as a learning experience. To support you in your professional career.

Braveboy: “They are more talented and better players than us. Learn what to do with the simple things.

Every time you play against some of the best players in the world, you must have a notebook in your head saying that’s what they did.

Braveboy: “Even when I’m in training, I watch players who play for England and the United States. In training I learn from them and when I’m in a game I learn from them because they play at the highest level.

When you come back to UMFK and start working with the guys, do you think they’re going to come up to you and tell you what kind of advice can you give us.

Braveboy: “I will be like we have to do simple things. We have to take care of the ball because when playing against USA, they took good care of the ball. They were running and passing the ball.

Is your goal to play Leon professionally one day?

Braveboy: ‘I’m trying to get to MLS and go from there. My goal is to get to MLS’
