Ethan Czaparowski (Belchertown, Mass.) has always been willing to make the one-hour, 20-minute commute to and from the Boston Bolts practice facility at Mount Ida campus in Newton, Mass., four days a week.
Sure, at times it could be a little draining, but he always figured that putting in that hard work and competing for one the finest MLS NEXT academy programs in New England would ultimately pay off.
Well, he was right.
The Bolts' Class of 2023 forward, who is a senior at Belchertown High School, has committed to Virginia Tech of the mighty ACC.
