Ricardo Carvalho ’15 never envisioned himself in Mishawaka, Ind., with a college degree and three languages under his belt by his mid-twenties. The business administration major, who hails from Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil, came to Bethel College after connecting with Bethel Head Men’s Soccer Coach Thiago Pinto ’05, ’07, ’11, through mutual friends in Brazil. Studying and playing soccer at Bethel proved to be life-changing for Carvalho, who was recently honored as the 2014 NCCAA/NSCAA Player of the Year for D1 men’s soccer (a first in Bethel men’s soccer history).
