Liberian player to give relief

Foreign based Liberian player Michel Okai has decided to offer relief items in the midst of the deadly Ebola virus outbreak in the country.

Okai explained that this is his way of giving back to his motherland by identifying with his motherland through the youth and his former schools such as the St. Edward’s Catholic and Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Schools as well as the Withergreen Foundation.

According to him, items to be donated are assorted materials for the eradication of the deadly Ebola virus.

He lauded citizens of Liberia for the drastic step taken against the deadly Ebola virus in the country.

Okai is currently a striker in the South American league for San Martin. He previously played in Japan and with the New York Red Bulls.

He entered the United States in September 2006 and attended the Trenton Central High School in Trenton, New Jersey for his junior and senior years. Okai did not play soccer for Trenton Central High School in his junior year because he was already an important player for the New York Red Bulls U18 team.

The next season he was moved to the New York Red Bulls U20 team and promoted to the reserved team.

Okai scored 29 goals which led the Colonial Valley Conference (CVC) in goal. His performance gave him several awards including Forward of the Year, Player of the Year, first team All-State, All-State MVP, Forward of the Year, and All-CVC. His talent and skills have resulted in numerous Division I colleges scouting him, including Saint Louis University and Saint John’s University.
