Sandia Prep student Dane Gallegos '23 has been selected for the U.S. Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program. He will travel to Barcelona, Spain, in March and to Scotland in April.
He's among only 18 players chosen from hundreds across the nation.
"I feel very grateful about this opportunity," Dane says.
According to a New Mexico Youth Soccer Association spokesperson, it's unusual to have youth players travel with a national team.
Dane's goals are to play soccer in college and eventually play professionally.
