His play on the field demonstrates that as well. Oceano tied for the team lead with six assists, which was fourth in the SoCon. He had a two-assist performance in a shutout victory over Mercer last season.
Off the field, Oceano is an interior architecture major and a top chef.
“I love to cook,” Oceano said. “There's rarely anything that gets me more excited than making food. I try new things to cook every day which I probably should start writing down because I tend to forget half of the good stuff that I made.”
The perfect combination of a strong soccer program and a nationally-renowned architecture school created plenty of positive vibes for Oceano, who was instantly attracted to UNCG.
“I applied to an agency called Sports Scholarships who are arranging and helping foreign athletes to get into American colleges,” Oceano said. “After sending in video footage and attending a national showcase hosted in Germany, I received a handful of offers from colleges all over the States from Hawaii to New York.
“A few months into talking to several coaches and thinking about my academic future, UNCG reached out and immediately had my attention. I instantly had a good feeling. After talking to the head coach at the time, my interest was amplified by the great culture and uplifting atmosphere at UNCG. I committed in summer 2017 and the rest is history.”
