Medaille’s Jaime Salcedo Plays for USA National Team in Brazil, Earns AMCC Award
Medaille’s Jaime Salcedo ’15 recently played for the D-III USA National Team and served as a soccer ambassador during the team’s weeklong showcase in Brazil. During the tour, the team played four professionally represented academy teams from São Paulo, Valinhos, São Jose Dos Campos and Rio de Janeiro, and finished with a 2-2 record.
“The level of competition was very high and the cultural experience of playing against Brazilian teams was incredible,” Salcedo says. “After each game, we would exchange jerseys and take pictures with Brazilian players, doing our best to thank them for the opportunity to play in their city.”
The Akron, NY, native found the experience of playing competitive soccer in Brazil and becoming immersed in Brazilian culture unforgettably rewarding.
“Throughout our travels we were given rare opportunities to take in the full spectrum of Brazilian culture,” he says. “I am fortunate to have had great guides and organizers, who gave us access to such opportunities, and I am grateful for the group of teammates I had the chance of sharing the Brazilian experience with.”
In addition to the honor of representing his country during the National Team tour, Salcedo was recently selected as this year's male recipient of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) Faculty Athletics Representatives Award. He was selected among ten nominees representing each of the schools in the AMCC.
A captain on the Medaille Mavericks soccer team, Salcedo was named to the CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-America Team in 2014. He graduated from Medaille in May with a bachelor of science in accounting and a perfect 4.0 GPA. Salcedo is currently pursuing his master of science in accounting at the College, and will complete the program in May 2016.
