Education and soccer are important to Robert Mugabe, a former Gloucester athlete finding his way to higher education and a soccer team. After taking a gap year last year to sort through some recruiting options, one of the college coaches that was most impactful and circled back to support and encourage him was in Kansas.
Mugabe is excited to announce that he signed with Kansas Christian College DII which competes in the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCCAA). He is thrilled to begin this new chapter.
“This morning I had my second college practice. School starts on Monday. The first game is August 30th: Kansas Christian College VS. Bethany Swedes.”

Mugabe will play up for the Falcons wearing #22 as he did for Gloucester High School varsity soccer, Cape Ann United, club teams, and Fisherman Youth in middle school. One of the perennial leading scorers, his speed, skills, strength and drive will take him far.

Good luck to Robert and the Falcons!
