Holy Ghost Prep student Nkosi Graham has the makings of an interesting “What I Did This Summer” essay if he gets asked to write one.

Graham, you see, traveled to Madrid, Spain from August 14-21 to attend the Real Madrid Foundation’s select program. Nominated by the Yardley Makefield Soccer program, Graham was one of 32 players from around the globe who was fortunate enough to chosen to train with some of the top European academy coaches in Madrid.

While there, Graham got an inside look at Real Madrid, one of the world’s most successful programs that is home to such superstars as Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, made possible by Generation Adidas International, took place at Real Madrid’s training facility and gave Graham a glimpse into the daily life of a Real Madrid Foundation Academy player.
