Persistence Pays Off For Khalafallah
Share:    

Shaddy Khalafallah started to think it may not happen. He wanted to play for a Big East Conference program, but wasn’t sure he was good enough to warrant a roster spot.

Despite repeated emails to coaches, the responses he received were minimal.

Shaddy Khalafallah Is Signing With Marquette

“There were times when I was really down and thought I was not going to be able to play college tennis,” Khalafallah said. “My parents were always trying to cheer me up and give me hope that I should trust the process and it would work out. They told me if I kept working hard eventually something good would happen.”

His parents were right.

After grinding to improve his game, Khalafallah began getting noticed by more college coaches. He arranged a visit to Marquette, and was eventually offered a chance to join the program.

The three-star senior from Moline, Illinois is making it official this week by signing his National Letter of Intent.

“Marquette is a school I always dreamed about going to since I was young because it’s an amazing school and it’s kind of close to home,” said Khalafallah, who is receiving a generous academic scholarship. “I was really hoping I would get the chance to go there.”
