College Announcement: Matt Valentine to Nova

JPetrov Academy congratulates U19 player Matt Valentine on his acceptance to the Medical Program at Nova Southeastern University. He is receiving a near full-ride, 4-year scholarship and guaranteed admission into their medical school afterward!

"The sport (soccer) has taught me life skills that are valuable for real-world situations," said Valentine. "How to improve on your weaknesses and learning from mistakes to name a few.... to understand that life requires hard work and dedication."

"Matt works hard on and off the field," said Jelco Petrov, Director, and Founder of JPetrov Academy. "He is being rewarded for good academics (Matt has a 4.0 GPA) and focus."

Although Matt has chosen to focus on his degree instead of soccer at the moment he is planning on attending an upcoming ID Camp for Nova's program in the near future.

Come out February 11, 12 and 13th to our FREE ID Camp to be identified early for next season! Sign up at
