Hi, I'm Isaac Banos, I was born in Houston, Texas in 2009. I started going to Northland when I was around 2 or 3 years old, but I moved to Chicago in 3rd grade. I came back to Northland in 7th Grade. I also play soccer, I started playing when I was 3 years old and haven't stopped since. Currently I am in 9th Grade at NCS, I love it here. I also currently play soccer in MLS Next for Houston Rangers. I am doing Cross Country and soccer at Northland, and maybe Track. I also recently just came off playing in USYS National Championships, which my old team placed top 4 in the Nation. I hope to become a professional Soccer Player. If I don't become a Pro, I would like to be a sports journalist hence why I am taking Journalism in High school. I hope to Graduate at Northland Christian in 2027.
