UNIVERSITY AT BUFFALO
2005 Senior Elite Academy player, Maya Galko, has committed to the University at Buffalo for the 2023-24 season to play as a Bull! University at Buffalo is an NCAA Division 1 program that plays in the Mid-American Conference (MAC).
Maya has been a part of Ottawa TFC since her grassroots ages and has worked her way up through our Academy, following the talented player pathway. This past season, she was the captain for the U17G OPDL squad, and on top of that was ranked as the #1 recruit by FTF Canada You may also recognize her as the girl who heat pressed your jersey number on or who sold you a training shirt, as Maya has been giving back to the club for a couple of years working as part of our in-house equipment staff!!
Maya has been recognized, and selected, for the NDC program. She will be moving to Toronto full-time this upcoming winter to join the squad and train in the National Program.
We are so proud of all you have accomplished so far Maya, and this hasn’t even scratched the surface of what is to come for you! Your Ottawa TFC family is excited to send you on your new education and soccer journey, and you bet we’ll be cheering you on back home.
A new page on our website will be live shortly, where all the committed players from previous years will be posted.
