For New England Revolution Academy Class of 2022 forward Isaie Louis (Everett, Mass.), the beautiful San Diego weather will be an added bonus.
But the main reason the talented striker chose to commit to Division 1 San Diego State University was that the direction of the Aztecs' program fell perfectly in line with what Louis was looking for at the next level.
"I went out on a visit and the plan they have for the future sounds very exciting," said Louis. "It’ll be very nice to play in a beautiful side of the country, and also the structure that they have -- I feel like I can reach my dreams while playing for the coaches."
San Diego State, which competes in the perennially very strong Pac-12, finished the 2021 season at 8-7-2 (2-7-0 Pac-12) under head coach Ryan Hopkins.
