22 year-old forward Carlos Powery of Tigers FC was unanimously voted CIFA Cayman Airways Player of the Month for December 2006.
In recognition of his outstanding performance, Carlos was presented with an airline ticket courtesy of Cayman Airways to any of their 12 destinations.
Carlos was also recently voted CIFA Gatorade Player of the Week for the week of November 19th to 25th. He expressed his delight at being named the CIFA Cayman Airways Player of the Month, although he does not know yet where he is going to travel with his prize ticket.
Even though this is Carlos’ first season with Tigers FC, he is the leading goal scorer with twelve goals. His Coach, Mr. Alfredo Whittaker, was delighted at this recognition and said that ‘Carlos is a very dedicated yet humble player, with a mind set on success. He is an outstanding example of dedication and hard work for the youth and those not so young anymore. It is an honor to be his coach. I want to thank CIFA for recognizing him as Player of the Month’.
Mr. Walter Hernandez, President of Tigers FC declared that ‘Carlos is an aspiring young footballer with great potentials and abilities. Although a man of few words, he is an example to others who surround him. We are happy to have him as part of Tiger F.C.”
Carlos is a Honduran who is currently employed with Stingray City as a Tour Guide. His hobbies are football, music and spending time with his family.
We wish Carlos the best for the rest of the season and hope that this award will serve as a motivating factor for him to maintain his excellent performance for the rest of the season.
