Congratulations to Philip Wong on his SigningFebruary 09, 2015
Philip Wong will be heading to Lincoln Memorial University this September to play in the prestigious NCAA university soccer league while earning a university degree in the field of veterinary.
Lincoln Memorial University has finished 7th place in their conference this year and hopes to finish near the top next season with strong additions like Philip.
Before making this commitment to LMU, he had 8 other university and scholarship offers but could only accept one.
Philip has represented the Hong Kong National team at the youth level and was the high school athlete of the year while studying at Diocesan Boys' School.
The Founder of Affinity Education, Mr. Magnus Leung says, "We are extremely excited for Philip and his family as he is one of the first soccer players in Hong Kong to go to university in the U.S on a sports scholarship. We are confident that he will make an impact on his team right away and will love the sporting and academic culture in the U.S.".
