A football prodigy from Guntur, Avula Sumanth, will be participating in the forthcoming National Under-19 School Games to be held at Andaman and Nicobar Islands from December 19.
Sumanth has already shown in prowess in the World Seven-a Side Football Championship held in Jammu & Kashmir.
For a boy, the journey from the small bylanes in Guntur to the football fields across the world has not been easy. He has consistently performed in the district-level, State-level and National tournaments. He has taken part in National tournaments held in Nepal and Pune.
“I have always wanted to become a veterinary doctor, but my passion towards football has helped to reach this position. I have a goal to play for the country,’’ Sumanth says.
