Buba Fofanah, a recent graduate of Cate School, has been named to the Top Drawer Soccer All-American and All-Region teams.
Fofanah, who signed to continue his soccer career and education at Portland University, was named second-team All-American and was selected to the California South Region squad, which includes players from the CIF Southern, Los Angeles, Central and San Diego sections.
A native of Sierra Leone, the speedy and powerful striker led Cate to an undefeated regular season and a Tri-Valley League championship in his senior season. He was named the league’s Offensive MVP and was selected to the All-CIF-Southern Section Division 6 team.
“Portland’s been on him for more than a year, and I think it’s a great fit for him both on and off the field — top notch soccer at a wonderful small school,” said Cate coach Peter Mack. “He’s going to love that community and they’re going to love him.”
