KENLY—Adolfo Rosales has been the heart and soul of the North Johnston boys soccer team for the past four seasons and was recently named to the 2A all-state team by the N.C. Soccer Coaches Association.
Rosales, who scored 47 goals and dished out 31 assists as a four-year starter in the midfield for the Panthers, made his decision for his plans after graduation from North Johnston as Rosales signed his letter of intent to play soccer for William Peace University.
Rosales also considered Catawba College, the University of Mount Olive and Guilford College but saw the opportunity the Pacers presented was just too good to pass up.
“It’s in the middle of downtown Raleigh so it’s closer to home,” said Rosales. “I felt at home when I walked on the campus.”
Rosales is considering either majoring in biology or in exercise or sports science.
Rosales also felt right at home as an attacking midfielder for the Panthers and helped lead North Johnston to a school record 21-win season as a sophomore and also a pair of conference championships.
