The Path to Signing Day

Everyone has their own unique path to success. Follow some of IMG Academy's top student-athletes and hear their stories about life leading up to signing day. Where they came from, the hard choices made, and the results. 

Katarina Kozarov

At three years old, Katarina Kozarov was introduced to tennis. At five, she fell in love with the sport. The individuality. The competition. The dedication required. As with any love, she followed it around the world. Specifically, she followed her love more than 5,400 miles – temporarily leaving her mother – from Novi Sad, Serbia to Bradenton, Florida, and proceeded to learn more about herself than she ever imagined.

Competing at a high academic and athletic caliber takes a level of determination, passion, and perseverance, to forgo the normalcies of life and chase after your dreams. For senior and dual-sport standout, Tony Jones Jr., the commitment required to make a name for himself as a student,  running back, and power hitter, was a welcomed sacrifice.

Mike Cormack

Undersized and underestimated, Michael never let his size determine how big he would play the game. At a young age, he would carve his own path as soccer player and as a person, leveraging his once five-inch height shortcoming as a constant motivation to outplay and outwit the competition. His love for soccer was undeniable and his talent and potential was self-evident by anyone who watched him on the pitch.
