We are proud to announce that Kinetic graduates, Mothibi Penn-Kekana and Kolade Salaudeen, are both furthering their education in the USA and combining their studies with a successful football career.
Mothibi is now in his sophomore year at Dartmouth College following his graduation from Kinetic Academy in 2017. Mothibi’s football career continues to strengthen and is now just one of six players to start with the college football team this season without being subbed for the first two games!
The latest game summary mentioned the following: “Budnik’s fourth save came in the 61st minute and the Big Green withstood a late barrage from the Minutemen with Mothibi Penn-Kekana coming away with a key tackle to secure the win.”
Kolade is also a sophomore and is attending Oregon State University. In his freshman year he made the college Soccer News National Team of the Week and was named to the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week. He has started in all 20 games last season, playing all but nine minutes. Can’t wait to hear what he achieves this coming season.
Mothibi and Kolade are obviously making their mark at Dartmouth and Oregon State and we wish them every success going forward. We are also looking forward to securing more university places in the US for our next crop of Kinetic Academy students who will be graduating next year and following Mothibi and Kolade stateside to continue their education and football careers.
