Play Atlantic Recruit of the Week - Jack Vaughan

Jack is 16 years old and lives in Albany, Auckland, New Zealand. He has been playing soccer since he was 3 and has always been very passionate about the sport. He has been selected for NZ National Talent Centre soccer camps and has been invited for trials at several English professional soccer clubs, including Aston Villa, Ipswich Town, Shrewbury Town and Walsall. He aspires to participate in collegiate soccer in the United States, as the country offers a new world of opportunities including a quality environment where his academic and athletic skills can flourish.

Jack's coaches think very highly of his athletic skills and determination. They claim he is 'an attacking player whose stature and work rate make him a real focal point for the team'. They also comment on Jack's excellent attitude during training, games, and the academic environment. 

In his spare time, Jack likes to take in the wonderful outdoor environment New Zealand has to offer. He enjoys boating, fishing, water-skiing, boogie boarding, and tennis. In his quieter moments, he enjoys reading autobiographies about people who have strived to achieve success and fulfill their dreams. He likes to read 'personal development' books to help him to learn positive habits and principles of success.
