The 21-year-old star will be studying for a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics at the William Jewell College in Missouri where he will remain for the next three years.
The talented youngster began playing football at the age of six on the dusty streets of Ha Thetsane before he joined the Kick4Life development side in 2016.
He will be joining the likes of Boitumelo Rabale, Senate Letsie, Lesia Thetsane, Mako Makoanyane and Morapeli Lesoetsa on the list of Kick4Life Athletic Scholarship beneficiaries.
The five are already studying and playing their football in the USA.
Kick4Life FC media liaison Reitumetse Tlopo said Lipholo will be the sixth Mosotho footballer to benefit from this crucial opportunity.
He further showed that his organisation is currently sorting out logistical issues regarding Lipholo’s departure to the US.
Keke, as Lipholo is popularly called, has expressed his delight over this great break, promising to make the best of it.
He thanked Kick4Life for recognising the potential in him, adding that he will work hard to make everybody proud.
“I want to thank Kick4Life for this glorious chance they are giving me, I feel so humbled for this opportunity to further both my studies and football career in the US, it’s a challenge that I really welcome.
“Kick4Life have played a major role in my development since I joined the side in 2016. Not only did I feel welcome, but I also met people who really care for me,” he said.
