International Academy and Global Premier Scholarships Athlete

April 18th, Waltham, MA, 2019; Global Premier Soccer (GPS) would like to congratulate Mac Naggar who has announced his commitment to play Division 1 soccer at Iona College in NY this coming fall.

Naggar an imposing center back joins the ‘Gaels’ after a season at the FAB Academy in the UK, GPS partner academy in England.  The International Academy provided a competitive, year round professional training experience for the New Jersey native

Naggar is also Global Premier Scholarships athlete having signed with the program last summer.  Global Premier Scholarships provides individual year-round support for prospective student-athletes who are looking for in-depth, consistent support throughout the college placement process.

Global Premier Scholarships is also perfectly placed to assist International Academy students who are outside the US and provides a connection to college coaches stateside.  Naggar, who has 1430 SAT score, had a specific school fit in mind and Global Premier Scholarships was able to make a connection with Coach Hamilton at Iona who was in the market for a center back.

Mac said this on the commitment and journey that led him there:

“I am elated to have verbally committed to play division 1 soccer at Iona College. During my senior year, I took a leap of faith to travel thousands of miles overseas to attend the GPS international academy. After being granted the opportunity to play at St. James Park, in Valencia, under accomplished coaches, I have grown immensely not only as a player, but also as a person.. I am extremely grateful for the staff at Global Premiership Scholarships, especially Callum, for providing me the path to continue my path to high level soccer and academics.”
