Big Cat Goalkeeping Alum Roman Celentano  is awarded Big Ten Defensive Player of the week award.

Roman joined Big Cat Goalkeeping Aged 11 and has since made a huge impact both in the Developmental Academy and is now making waves at NCAA DI level with Indiana University.

“Roman has always been a talent. Level headed, ultra competative, hard working, humble and confident are all words that I would use to describe him. I have had the pleasure of working with Roman for a long time as he has been a part of our program for many years. He has traveled with me to Newcastle United, Sunderland, Sporting Lisbon, Blackburn Rovers plus many other clubs in Europe. At Camp React he has always been the guy who encourages other to strive to be the best. He really is a role model for our younger keepers and he will be successful both on and off the field. If he wants to be a professional player, he will make it!” – Neil Thompson
