AIA Men's Soccer Spain
Tristin was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, but after a series of moves over the years, he now resides in Chapel Hill. He is a junior at UNC where he majors in Sport Administration with a minor in Coaching Education. Tristin has been a lover of the beautiful game for many years but was forced into retirement (from playing) due to a series of head injuries. He has been on a few international mission trips where he used soccer to connect with the local youth and share his faith. For this trip, he will be serving as the team manager working along side the coaches and staff, while also heading the team's social media.
"I am beyond excited to be going on a trip that allows me to use my passion for soccer while giving me the opportunity to grow in my faith. My passion for the game has grown tremendously since I was forced off the field. It's amazing to see God's faithfulness as I have been blessed with many opportunities to serve Him through soccer. I pray that God will use me during this trip, pulling me closer to Him while cultivating my passion for the game so I can better serve the teams that I coach and the soccer programs at Carolina."
