Known as "the boy who went to Egypt," his journey began humbly at Cheza Sports Academy, where he couldn't even kick a ball.

The Humble Beginnings

Edwin's first day at Cheza Sports Academy was a scene of uncertainty. The young boy, barely able to control or pass a ball, stood nervously on the pitch, surrounded by peers who seemed light-years ahead in skill. But what Edwin lacked in ability, he more than made up for in determination. The coaches at Cheza Sports saw a spark in his eyes—a desire to learn and improve. A boy who came from the Mukuru slums and only wanted to be on the field the whole day.

The Transformation

Under the guidance of skilled coaches particularly Coach Dennis, Edwin's transformation began. The academy's philosophy is rooted in patience, persistence, and personal growth. Edwin attended every training session with an unmatched zeal. He practiced tirelessly, often staying back after regular sessions and coming earlier than his scheduled class to work on his ball control, passing, and dribbling. The boy who once struggled to kick a ball began to understand the game's nuances and his confidence grew with each passing day.

The Egyptian Dream

Edwin's big break came when he was selected to travel to Egypt as a mascot in the African Cup of Nation. The experience was a dream come true. Importantly, he was inspired by the stories of stars he saw who, like him, had overcome significant challenges to pursue their passion.

The Rise to Prominence

Back at Cheza Sports Academy, Edwin's growth was meteoric. He quickly became one of the standout players, known for his midfield prowess. His ability to control the tempo of the game, his sharp passing, and his defensive capabilities made him an invaluable asset to any team he played for.

When Kibabii High School recruited him, it was clear they had acquired a gem. Edwin's presence in midfield was instrumental in their quest for glory in the Bungoma Secondary School Ball Games. His leadership on and off the field, coupled with his calmness under pressure came in handy during shoot outs.
