During the ID Camp, Garcia was selected to the 2014 Region I ODP 2001 (U13) training pool. Garcia stated, “While participating in the Maryland State ODP, I had the best experience in my life so far. I made many friends in the state as well as outside of the country with Maryland State ODP giving us the opportunity to go to Scotland. Maryland State ODP gave me more confidence as a player by playing against top level players. I am very thankful for all my coaches who helped me to get this far. I will do my best to represent the State of Maryland and Region I.” Additionally, Garcia’s mother, Nadi Garcia added, "We are very proud of Thunlwyn. He trained very hard to be selected for the 2014 Maryland State ODP and the Region I pool. Thunlwyn's soccer skills have progressed by playing for the Maryland State ODP. We look forward to his continued development in the future."
Everyone from the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association congratulates Garcia on his selection to the 2014-15 Thanksgiving Interregional event and looks forward to watching him grow and develop as a person and as a player in the coming years!
