Student or Learner
I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?
Nobody could have predicted that John, being average at school sports, would one day became a professional football player.
It's fine. (My mistake. See post 4.)
I would add 'merely/just/only' before 'average'.

Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
You're so right, of course, Boris.
I must get these glasses changed.
