- Sora Wakabayashi
Born in Osaka, Japan, Sora is an outside back looking to cause trouble on the attack while also keeping Duluth’s back line secure and strong. Above all Sora loves how the position makes him utilize his talents as a dribbler. He transitioned into the position in college and hasn’t left it since.
Football has always been a part of Sora’s life, an idea and passion that can be traced back throughout his memory. From as young as he can remember Sora knows he was always kicking the ball around for fun. Along with his family, Sora also received guidance from his junior high school coach who he often sources as the best coach he’s ever played for. That guidance helped him find his talents and tone his mentality on and off the pitch.
Sora has always looked up to fellow outside back Marcelo of Real Madrid and the Brazilian national team, looking to the legendary player as an example of how the position can be a creative and key point for any squad. Sora is a passionate supporter of French giants PSG, known for their constant variety of star players and consistent domestic success.
