Little Axe started playing soccer in a recreational league in elementary school and said he would always score four or five goals a game.

“My mom would say all the parents were talking about how good I was, but I didn't really think I was that good,” he said. “I just played my best and everything worked out.”

Now, Little Axe will continue his soccer career at Oklahoma Christian University. He signed there last month.

“There was just something about it,” he said. “It felt cozy, homey and welcome.”

Claros said his program will miss Little Axe, who he calls not only one of the best players he's ever coached, but also one of the most pleasant.

“On and off the field, I can't say enough about the type of kid he is,” Claros said. “He's going to be missed, and hopefully we get more and more types of kids who are like him. If we do, we'll continue to be extremely successful.”
