Student Profile

Team BC Football member Beth Howard

Beth Howard

I wanted to join Team BTC so I could combine my education with sporting opportunities. I had so many great times meeting new friends who shared my interests and the opportunities that came with it, such as trials for the England Colleges National Team. Team BC is a really fun way to develop yourself around great people, with the chance to go far. I ‘m now on a football scholarship at Ryder University, in the USA!”
