3rd from the right wearing #50 with the Linces from SevillaIn Year 10 (at school) he was offered a full academic scholarship from a private boarding school in England, UK if he would get an average of an A grade, which he comfortably managed. After accepting this offer he had to find a new football team up north before starting his next year. He contacted the National British Football association asking which team would be the closest to his school in Cranleigh. From then on Mario joined the Farnham Knights and played for the U17 team in the first year and both U17 and U19 in his second moving through several positions like TE, LB and Line usually excelling in size and strength. His highlights with the "Mighty Knights" were never to be beaten at home and ending 2nd of Great Britain with their U19 squad.
