DURING his time at Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts, soccer player Sunjoon Tenorio was named team MVP and Rookie of the Year for three consecutive weeks.

He now believes that transferring to Warner Pacific University in Portland, Oregon can further improve his soccer skills. “Some of the factors that I considered before transferring to Portland was location, level of play, and opportunities,” he said.

Warner Pacific University competes in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. “It is equivalent to Division 1 or 2 in the National Collegiate Athletic Association,” Tenorio said. 

He also appreciates the faith and trust shown by his new head coach, Warner Pacific University’s Troy Ready. “He believes in my talents and potential,” Tenorio added.
