Nicolas, one of our newest male chasers, joined the Tufflepuffs because it sounded like a fun alternative to playing soccer and a great way to geek out. On the field, you'll often find Nick shakin' and bakin' before using his remarkable speed to score. On the sidelines, this engineer can be found cheering on his teammates or goofing off. His sense of humor is extremely appreciated at practices, especially during rough conditioning sessions. Throughout high-school, Nick played right wing on highly competitive soccer teams in Texas. He says that his experience from soccer truly helps him now as a small chaser.
Our former soccer star also has a love for competitive soccer - he is a devout supporter of Liverpool. This team was the first team he ever saw play and he's supported them ever since. He even supports Louis Suarez despite his biting scandal. But don't think Nick is all sports all the time - this Tufflepuff has a great love for computer science, his two poodles and the Lord of The Rings movies. Although he hasn't read the books, Nick has seen this movie series multiple times from start to finish. While his favorite hobbit is Pippin, if he could choose anyone from the movies he would want to be Gandalf because he's a major badass.
Nick is looking forward to his first World Cup. He believes it'll be cool to play some of the top teams in world, especially since Tufts is considered to be a major contender in Myrtle Beach!
