Soccer player Angel Santos will be playing soccer for the Central Methodist University Eagles in Fayette, Mo., next season. Santos began playing soccer at 7 years old in the Wimauma Rural Youth Soccer Association league, where he honed his skills enough to lead his Lennard High School team with 19 goals in 2016. Santos has continued to volunteer as a coach at RYSA, setting an example for future players of how hard work pays off.
