Mateus Forte - A Star On And Off The Field

Mateus Forte, Dragon Force Toronto-Bradford U16 player, has set a shining example both on and off the field during the 2016 season.

On the field, he anchors his team. Off the field, it's his commitment to giving back to the community that wins him accolades.

Partnering with RBC at Yonge and Green Lane, and the RBC Royal Bank #make150count campaign that celebrates Canada's 150th Birthday next year, Mateus was among the youth chosen to receive $150, to use in support of any local cause.

Mateus looked no farther than the Portuguese Cultural Centre of Bradford, in his home town giving the money to the annual Kids' Christmas event at the PCCB, that collects non-perishable food items for those less fortunate during the Holiday season, and toy donations to give to the children that attend the community party. Kids' Christmas will take place Saturday, December 17 at the Centre, from 2 to 5 p.m.

On November 5, Mateus celebrated a fantastic season on the pitch, with his teammates and Dragon Force Academy family but it is his contribution, giving back to the community, that makes him a star.
