Nico D’Angelo plays for the Penticton Orange Crush and has been playing soccer for the past five years, starting when he was just four years old.
He said he likes to play mid-fielder, striker or right defence because they are some of the most active spots.
“I like how the team works together,” said D’Angelo, about why he loves the sport so much.
When he isn’t on the pitch, you can find D’Angelo playing street hockey.
