Representing the Virgin Islands (VI) with pride and joy wherever he goes, our young professional this week is Kavon T. Caesar, who aspires of owning a sports medical centre in the Virgin Islands.

Kavon T. Caesar also known as 'Troy' is a 23 year old student and a football player for the National Association of Intercollegiate aathletics (NAIA).

Early Education

Kavon obtained his primary education at the Francis Lettsome Primary School in East End, Tortola. He then went on to the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS).

As a means to broadening his horizons he furthered his education at the Andrew College in Cuthbert, Georgia. Currently, Kavon is pursuing his Bachelor's Degree in Business at Life University in Marietta Georgia.

Before journeying to the United States to study, Kavon worked at the Magistrate's Court in John's Hole as a Clerical trainee for a few months.

Ultimate goal

The national footballer is a part of a young team in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

"We managed to reach to the semi finals last season and for the following season the team is becoming stronger," expressed Kavon.

The young man told our news reporter that through representing the Virgin Islands on the national football team, he has travelled to most of the Caribbean Islands such as Trinidad, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Aruba.

Our young professional's ultimate goal is to open up a sports medical centre in the Virgin Islands.

Kavon also passionately expressed that he wants to see more activities for the youth in all types of sport, while adding sports are another way to get children into something positive.

He said, "I would like to see more creative activities for the youths, not just in football but other sports, because sports are one of the ways to get kids off the streets, and it also gives them positive attributes to go out in the community and make a difference."

Our young professional also wants to see equal rights for persons who participate in any type of sports, emphasising that one should work hard for a position on a team rather than gain selection based on who you know.


Kavon stated that his inspiration comes from his mother, father and grandmother.

"I left the Virgin Islands with the thought that I am not just representing myself and my family but the whole territory. Also with the grace of God, prayers and encouragement from my mom, dad, my church and my girlfriend," expressed our young professional.

In his football career, he stated that a number of coaches and organisations inspired and helped him along the way. They are: Ms Cassandra Greg, Vincent Samuel, Avondale Williams, Morris Mark Jr, the BVI Football Association, and his first United States (US) coach, Rudy Roediger.

Advice to youth

In sharing his wisdom to youth, Kavon said, "In everything you do put God first and be humble with discipline. It don't matter where you are from or what your social status is, there is always a way to success."

    I have had the opportunity of teaching him along with two of his siblings. Wonderful children!!! Mom and dad, thank you for keeping them grounded and raising them up to know the word. Troy, please continue to put God first and foremost as you excel in what you do. You are a role model. I always remember the proud look on Troycia's face when she told me where you are and what you are doing. Wishing you nothing but the best son! Excellent pic VINO
