Ricardo Gonzalez nominated for national award
North Dallas senior Ricardo Gonzalez (left) is nominated for the Mundial Sports Network Best of the Best Latino high school player award.
North Dallas High senior winger Ricardo Gonzalez is one of six soccer players nominated for the Mundial Sports Network’s Best of the Best athletic leadership scholarship.
Mundial Sports honors the best Latino male and female high school and college athletes who display leadership on and off the field. The players are honored with videos that show their commitment, courage and values, culminating in a vote for the 2014 Best of the Best.
“The Futbol Mundial Scholarship is a blessing,” Gonzalez said in an email, “just being nominated is a big thing. This opens up an opportunity for me to get to play college soccer. No matter if I win or not, you have to take every opportunity they give you because with those opportunities, you can open other doors to more opportunities.
“This has been the biggest thing that’s ever happened to me. I'm really grateful for Futbol Mundial!"
From Dec. 1 to 10, North Dallas High fans are encouraged to vote for Gonzalez’s video at an online link that will be announced next week. In selecting the winner, the online vote counts for 25 percent and the judges’ vote counts for 75 percent. The four winners will be announced Dec. 12.
The winners will be eligible to receive a spread in the Futbol Mundial publication; $1,000 scholarship – $500 to the student and $500 to the school program; and a Leadership Awards luncheon or dinner at their school to present the Best of the Best honor.
The nominees for male high school player include:
