Josh Francombe is among six Riverwood International Charter School student-athletes who recently committed to play their sport in college. Because of social-distancing restrictions, no formal signing ceremonies were held. The students join 10 classmates from the Class of 2020 who have previously announced their intentions to play at the next level.
Francombe committed to play men’s soccer for Elon University in Elon, N.C.
Several years ago, the AJT reported that Francombe played for the Atlanta United U16 team after he was team captain for Georgia United. He was called in 2017 to play for the Wales U16 team. He qualified to play for the U.S., England and Wales because his father was born in England and raised in Wales, where his Welsh parents lived before moving to the U.S.
