records. “It was an honor to be a part of that,”
Romero said. Along with this, he was recognized
as the homecoming king of Brevard College
this past fall.
He has enjoyed being in a different state and
different environment from Florida. Romero has
built many relationships during his time here at
Brevard and says they have turned into family
through the strong bonds that he has made. He is
proud of being an RA and peer mentor as well.
Romero also received the 2019 Sweezy Award,
which was an honor.
Through these bonds, Romero is now a student
assistant football coach, which will possibly
lead to a full time position in the fall of 2020.
As a coach, he is learning how to recruit future
students. He has already been on one recruiting
trip to the Greenville and Spartanburg area
in South Carolina. He also had the chance
to attend the 2020 Carolinas Senior Football
Showcase in Charlotte, North Carolina. His
primary recruiting area is Central Florida and
his secondary recruiting area is Western North
Romero was nominated to fly to California to
represent Brevard College at the 2020 NCAA
Immersion Program in Anaheim. Only 40
student athletes across the country get selected
for this program. It was there that he met
athletic directors, expanded his network and
learned the ropes behind how the NCAA works.
Since he attended the NCAA conference, he
was granted the opportunity to attend another
conference called Career in Sports Form in May
in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“My advice to freshmen is to come in willing
to experience new things and expand their
networks by meeting new people,” siad Romero.
“Make sure to get your degree.”
Upon graduation, Romero plans on working
up north in New York this summer for 12 weeks.
He got this job through assistant head coach
Jeron Gouveia. It is a door to door salesman
job selling pest control services. The company
is ranked number one in the United States for
pest control and is called Aptive Environmental.
Romero is very grateful for this prospect and
is looking forward to continuing his career at
Brevard College this fall as a football coach.
