Michaeljon Moleiro, a 2021 graduate from Rocky Hill High School, will play soccer and continue his education at Washington Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania.
“I chose Washington & Jefferson because of their great academic path for pre-medicine and their great rank nationally for Division III, which is 10th,” stated Moleiro, who will major in biology.
Soccer consumed most his time in Rocky Hill, playing all four years at the high school and playing CFC (Connecticut Football Club), which is a year-round club that plays in the Elite Clubs National League.
Moleiro said that soccer has taught him many life lessons, “Soccer has made a very big impact on my life and will continue to do so. When I was five years old, I began playing the sport and instantly fell in love with it.”
He was a captain for the Terriers as a junior and senior, making All-Conference both seasons. Off the field, Moleiro was an honors student in the classroom.
“The thing I will miss most about RHHS is the general atmosphere and the friends I’ve made throughout my four years,” said Moleiro
At W&J College he will play for a longtime coach Ian McDonald, who is entering his 31st season leading the Presidents, making him the 10th longest tenured soccer coach in Division III. The team is coming off back-to-back Presidents’ Atlantic Conference Championships. Moleiro will join former high school teammate and 2020-Rocky Hill graduate Jake Rajotte on the defensive end at W&J.
