Maldonado’s football career has been halted as he recovers from a knee injury

In a regular season football match against the Florida Tropics on May 28, Armando Maldonado made a ball move. But the Lakeland United striker had a cut from behind as his left foot was firmly planted in the ground.

His body moved, followed by a loud thud. At that moment, Maldonado could not feel his knee – he tore the anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus around the 75th minute of the match.

Polk County Footballer of the Year 2021 Maldonado has signed up to play for the United Premier Soccer League to boost his soccer skills in hopes of a college scholarship.

His goal was successful. He earned a scholarship to Prairie State College in Chicago early in the season, and scheduled a start date with the NJCAA program on June 25.
