Meet Okan Golge!
As a young kid, Okan would often find himself fixated on his childhood hero; Ronaldhino. Okan would come home and sit in front of his computer watching one of the greatest play for hours and hours. “He could do things with his feet some can’t even do with their hands,” explained Okan.
Okan comes from a relatively large town called Köln, Germany, where he has 2 siblings back home – a younger brother and an older sister.
Okan is a sophomore here at Morningside College. He is currently here on a soccer scholarship and plays with number 10 on his back. However, he plays more of a 9 role which is a lead striker and this has helped him break a couple of school records.
Last year, Okan was able to score 8 goals for the Mustangs and also had 3 assists to his name to round off a first successful college season/career.
When discussing the future of the Morningside soccer team, Okan spoke with great confidence and explained how the team can produce a high amount of success.
Morningside was able to successfully win a GPAC title against rival side Briar Cliff in a game that ended 3-2. Despite Okan’s absence after a suspicious red card early on, the team was able to pull together and get the job done.
