Senior athlete Nkosi Burgess signed a National Letter of Intent on April 17 to play soccer for the University of Connecticut’s vaunted Huskies Division I program.

An outstanding defender and crucial member of Deer Park’s 2012 and 2014 League IV soccer champions, Burgess was named All-County and team MVP in 2013 and 2014. He is also currently a member of the Falcons track team, where he remains undefeated in the 400 meter.
“I chose UConn for the athletic program, because I have aspirations to be a professional soccer player,” said Burgess. “I’ve wanted to play Division I since freshman year.”
