My name is Mike Reed, and I am from San Diego, CA. I graduated from Torrey Pines High School in June 2012 and played NCAA DIII soccer in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) in Fall 2012 for the University of La Verne. I will be graduating from Mira Costa Community College in May 2014 Phi Theta Kappa with an Associate's degree in Psychology and an IGETC certificate. I have three more years of eligibility and am looking to transfer to a 4 year university where I can obtain a Bachelor's degree in Psychology while playing collegiate soccer.
The highlight of my freshman college season was scoring the game winning goal in double overtime to beat the University of Redlands. It was their first defeat in SCIAC play since 2010, and my second game winning goal of the season. I was also named to the all tournament team at the North Country Lotto Classic hosted by St. Lawrence University in New York.
Prior to college, I played competitive club soccer and high school soccer. My U19 Academy club team came in first place in the SCDSL U19 Flight 1 (2011). My TPHS soccer team was 2012 CIF Southern Regional Division I semifinalist. San Diego Section Division I champion, Palomar league champion, and ranked 29th in the nation. I received scholar athlete, all-academic team, all-league honorable mention, tournament MVP and coach's awards. This was one of the most successful seasons in the history of the high school, and I am listed in the school's record book as one of the all-time most notable players.
I am a versatile player. At LaVerne I played left mid, forward, and some center mid. I was the starting forward for my high school team, and I played right defender and forward for my club team.
