Kainesochi Ugonna-Ufere

Kaine Ugonna-Ufere is a senior on the Boy’s Varsity Soccer team. He played for Audubon in his junior and senior years. This fall (2022) he played on varsity as a striker and outside wing. He had 10 goals and 4 assists. Last year he played for the JV team and had 9 goals and 7 assists. He’s been playing soccer since he was 2 years old. After graduating, he is planning to continue playing in college while earning his computer engineering degree. He is planning to apply to Berkeley and Rowan Universities.

His grand-mom is the reason he fell in love with soccer. Before she passed away, she would take him to watch soccer games together.

His dad is his role model. He looks up to him because of the sacrifices he made for the family and he wants to be able to do the same thing one day. His dad was also a soccer player, but he played for fun. Kaine would be the first to play seriously for a college team. The support of his family members makes him try harder and become better.

Out of the two fall seasons he has played for Audubon he stated this season is his favorite because the team has won the conference even though he was dealing with a foot injury since the early weeks of the season. Mr. Tomasetti’s words every game, “Go out there and have fun,” inspired Kaine to go out on the field and play for the fun and passion in every game.
