Congratulations to FC Durham Academy (FCD) 2021 Graduate Sierra "OG" O'Grady on signing with University of West Alabama (UWA)!

Sierra is joining 2 former FCD Graduates in the highly competitive UWA Tigers Program that is always in the running Gulf South Conference Championship.

Rich Hirst our Girl's High-Performance Manager says "We are elated for OG to be signing with UWA and taking this next step in life. When she graduates from FCD this August, it will mark 7 years at FCD. It was a delight to personally work with her for 6 of those 7 years. She has been a big part of our FCD family and will always be. A driven student and person with a very bright future ahead of her on and off the field.  OG has elite level awareness, perception, vision, playmaking and technical abilities, that along with her relentless mentality/passion will make her a great addition to the central midfield at UWA.  After spending so much time with her and watching her grow as a person, I have learned so much more about her. She is dedicated, focused, caring and generates high standards for herself. Traits that will help in university soccer, her career and in life."

We look forward to following this next step of her journey and all her future successes.
