"It's important for me to get an education because it gives my family a better way of life and sets a good example for my little brother and everyone around me who isn't sure if they want to go to college yet," said Diego Briceño, who plays on the Oxnard College Condors soccer team. "Hearing from the L.A. Rams organization excites me about the chance to combine my passion for sports with a good career."
