Some highlights of my soccer to date:

I am a current member of Manly United Football Club’s u20 and 1st Grade Squads. This is the highest level of senior club competition in Sydney and is seen as the strongest Men’s competition in Australia. I am one of the few 17 year olds in these squads, in the country.

I represented my school in 2018 and we won the GPS school competition (undefeated) and I was selected in the combined GPS and CIS u18 sides (as an u17/junior year). Please see a reference from my coach below.

I was selected to play for Sydney FC (our equivalent of LA Galaxy) u18s in 2017 (I was 15 at the time), I left them in 2018 to play 1st Grade and u20s at Manly (in the same competition) because Sydney were not supportive of my college goals.

I have trained with several UK clubs. None of these clubs offered me the opportunity to continue with my education whilst playing for them. I have an invitation to return after my graduation next year:
Norwich City FC (2018) where I trained with their u18 and u23 teams and played games vs Leicester City 23s, Sutton (Seniors) and Colchester 18s.

I have been twice to Watford FC (2017 and 2018), after my second trip I was verbally offered a contract by the Head of the Academy, however this did not eventuate as the individual and his coaching team left the club shortly after.

I have also spent time with Fulham (2016), Crystal Palace (2017) and Swansea (2017), scoring a goal for Swansea 18s vs Welsh National Schoolboy side.

I was selected in an Australian invitational team that toured the UK in Jan 2016 and played against u16 academies at Everton, Tottenham Hotspur, Reading, Charlton, QPR, Burnley, Watford, Blackburn, Sheffield United, Crewe and Fleetwood Town.

I was selected in an Australian invitational side to play in a tournament in Korea in August 2016. Teams included FC Barcelona, Liverpool, Tottenham, Valencia, Benfica, and the Korean and Thailand National sides.

In 2015 I was selected for the state team (NSW) and played in the u15 national competition.

Jim Magill
Head Coach, ST IGNATIUS COLLEGE, RIVERVIEW

“Max, was a big part of my team this year playing in midfield he was the man that controls the game with his passing. His vision on the ball was outstanding in supplying the front men with great passes to score goals. He has a great attitude when he comes to training. He works very hard and is very keen to learn. If I needed a player to play forward, Max could do that very well. This year we won the premiership as undefeated Champions, with Max playing in three different positions for me, holding midfield, attacking midfield, and striker - he not bad at scoring goals too! This young man has got great ability with both feet. Max is a very polite young man and is respected by all of his team mates. He is a very competitive player when he is on the field, he plays the game very hard but fair and does not like to lose. As Head Coach of Riverview Football, I have not seen a better footballer come through the school than Max, and I have been Coaching at the school for 18 years. He is a credit to his parents, the school and himself.”

Personal Highlights

I have been fortunate enough, to experience a lot of community service, both in my local area, and in some of the more marginalized areas in the world. Most notable is my recent trip to Nepal, in which I, alongside my classmates, taught english and raised necessary funds for the nepalese children of a small, isolated school.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

College Sport is a great opportunity for me to pursue my athletic dreams, while also attaining a high level education.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

On the field, I am captain of both my soccer team and my cricket team at my high school. Off the field, I am a liturgy captain, meaning I'm apart of the organizing, and performing of whole school religious events. These opportunities give me the ability to lead by example both on and off the field.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

For me personally, healthy athletic performance is a way of life, this includes eating the right types of food, nutrition and fluids. As far as mentally being healthy, I ensure that i don't 'place all of my eggs in one basket', as I also play cricket amongst other interests outside of soccer.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

Over the past 5 years, I have completed over 70 hours of community service, including; in hospitals with sick children, taking care of dementia patients and more. These efforts show to myself how fortunate I am to be in my position, and give me extra motivation to make the most of my circumstances.
