Former Hatch End High and West Herts College student Max Walcott has signed a full football scholarship worth $200,000 over four years with Hartwick College, New York.
The 6ft 3in striker was recommended to United Sports USA Director of Soccer Andy Newman by West Herts College tutor Liam Walsh.
After being watched during a college match Walcott was then asked to take part in a second assessment with other talented soccer players at The Arena in Baldock.
Newman said: “Physically Max was the most impressive athlete I have worked with in ten years of helping students gain scholarships in the United States.
“He has a tremendous physique, lightning pace and an eye for goal and will be a huge asset to the Hartwick Hawks who are managed by former Liverpool FC youth player John Scott.”
Walcott moved to New York this summer and will combine football with studying business as a full time student.
