New York Soccer News: Miguel’s fluency in two languages will be invaluable on New York’s soccer fields
The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is very pleased to announce that Miguel Castro has joined our team at our office in Rockville Centre. He is our new Communications Associate.
Miguel is working part-time with us until he graduates from SUNY-Old Westbury this May. The Elmont resident is Media Communications Associate at the college, working for OWWR (Old Westbury Web Radio) and The Catalyst newspaper.
Born in Colombia and speaking both English and Spanish fluently, Miguel has a soccer background, having played every position except goalkeeper with the Franklin Square Raiders of the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL). When he was 16 years old, he realized that he was not going to be the next Messi so he decided to devote himself to the media part of the sport.
Additionally, Miguel is a big fan of Liverpool and the United States Men’s National Team.
Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association: With over 100,000 youth soccer players–both boys and girls–and more than 25,000 volunteers, the non-profit Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) reaches from Montauk Point, Long Island to the Canadian border. Members are affiliated with nine leagues throughout the association, which covers the entire state of New York east of Route 81. ENYYSA exists to promote and enhance the game of soccer for children and teenagers between the ages of 5 and 19 years old and to encourage the healthy development of youth players, coaches, referees, and administrators.
