For Daniel Pritchard of Nuneaton, UK, football, or soccer as it’s known in North America, has always been his number one sport. His love of the game has fuelled him to play well on the pitch, but also to perform well in the classroom. The third-year Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) student is as serious on the field as he is in his studies, saying, “For any student-athlete wanting to come to CBU, I would tell them that it’s the perfect place to develop your athletic and academic skills due to the fact we are a small university, but have so much talent here.”
Daniel has played soccer since the age of five, and the defenceman knows that he’ll likely always play in some capacity, even after graduation next year. “Soccer will be apart of me wherever I go and whatever I end up doing,” says Daniel. “My future plans after CBU will be traveling or relocating myself to a different area of the world, that I haven’t been to before and sport tends to be a universal language.”
As Daniel gears up for the upcoming Atlantic University Sport Championship taking place at CBU from November 2-5, 2017, he reflects fondly on his 2016 experience. “One of my favorite experiences at CBU so far has to be winning the AUS Championship last year,” says Daniel. “We’re a small athletics community with four varsity teams, so we all support each other.”
For Daniel, attending a small university like CBU has only pros. As he gets to know and build relationships with the staff, faculty and other students, he knows they’ll all be cheering him on at the Championship tournament.
Join us from November 2-5, 2017, to cheer on the CAPERS.
