Jeremy Fishbein has added a pair of talented International players to his Lobo men’s soccer team.
Six-foot-one defender Maliek Howell is comes to New Mexico from Kingston, Jamaica, where he was a highly decorated player who represented Jamaica on the youth international level by playing on the U17 and U20 national teams.
Howell issued a statement through UNM sports information about selecting New Mexico: “I have chosen UNM because it is the best option for me and my family,” said Howell. “I see this as a great opportunity to learn and grow as a person and a leader. I bring all I am to contribute to the success of my team and teammates because life is not only about being successful but to be significant and to make an impact.”
Carlton McKenzie is from England. The six-foot forward is coming to New Mexico from Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas, where in 2017, he scored the game-winning goal in the National Championship match leading his squad to the title.
McKenzie also told UNM Sports Information why he chose the school: “I chose UNM because I wanted to play soccer at an institution where nothing but the best is required, on and off the field,” said McKenzie.
