Warrick attended one of Soccer Assist’s Watford assessment days in August 2017. Since then he has flourished within showcase and trial matches gaining video footage to contribute to his highlight tape. Soccer Assist Director Junior recalls Warrick’s decision-making process. He says ‘After sieving through his offers, Warrick came to a decision to commit to Lassen College. We put him in contact with another client who previously attended Lassen before transferring over to a 4-year school on an 85% scholarship. I’m sure Warrick will go on to be a success!’.
