What Coach Lee had to say about Diego:

 

"Diego is a multi-sport athlete but his true passion is soccer.  It is highly evident in the way he plays! You will often find Diego at Ta-Ha-Zooka park on his own trying to perfect his skills.  During a match you will see him demonstrating leadership on the field by encouraging other members of the team and by setting the example for others to emulate.  

Diego's effort and determination to be the best player on the pitch is unparalleled.  Diego's primary position is forward but he can play any position extremely well including goal keeper.

The other members of the team simply want to be around him because of his love of soccer coupled by his personable and positive attitude.  His skill level and determination to perfect his craft are unmatched and it has been an honor to coach Diego."
