Rafael Terci is a senior captain on the Montclair State University Men’s Soccer team. When he was a 1 year old, he and his family immigrated from Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brazil. Coming from the Brazilian culture, soccer is Terci’s passion and one love. Terci said, “It’s the reason why I play.” He started playing the game at a very young age and competed for many elite club teams during his youth. Terci committed to play soccer at Montclair State in 2015. During his time at MSU, Terci was very successful in leading his team to winning two NJAC championships and in making a run to the Elite Eight in the Division 3 National Championship Tournament. Now that Terci’s college career is over, he plays for a semi-professional team and is working his way up to become a pro.
