By Ruben Morales Iglesias: This week, volleyballers Francis Hauze and Edgar Martinez signed letters of commitment after winning full athletic scholarships to study and play at Calumet College of St. Joseph in Whiting, Indiana, United States. Hauze and Martinez signed their letters of commitment with Calumet during a video conference on Tuesday, March 23.
Reporter William George Ysaguirre, who has been following them since they were teenagers, said Martinez and Hauze began playing competitive volleyball at ages of 14 and 15 respectively.
Since then, both Hauze and Martinez have represented Belize in regional indoor and beach volleyball championships.
Martinez plays as a middle blocker while Hauze does so as an outside hitter.
Now, they’ll be plying their skills at Calumet where they will be studying for bachelor’s degrees in Graphic Design, as well.
“These two gentlemen can be the prime examples of working hard and to also transcend what you believe you can be,” Belize Volleyball Association President, Allan Sharp said.
Their scholarship comes after the BK Foundation led by Bryton Codd and Karym Coleman opened the doors two years ago. Both Codd and Coleman were awarded scholarships to study and play at Briercrest College in Canada where they have excelled. Since then, other volleyball players, namely Alexander Ariola, Daril Avila, Kori Diego and Mya Musa have received university scholarships to play in the Canada and the US.
