Personal Statement

    Ultimately, I want to play professional soccer, which, I know, is a very ambitious goal. But dreams are dreams, and I refuse to give up. I am a very passionate player, I have a deep love for the game and live my life by soccer. This intense passion for soccer is what has driven me to be the player I am today.

Starting select soccer in 7th grade and being one of the worst on the team, I have grown into a young man that starts for the varsity team at Enterprise High School and captained the Dothan Shockers after only being with them for a month. This was not luck, this was not good fortune; this was an enduring work ethic of a player that loves the game more than anything. These achievements are the culmination of early morning runs, extra hours training with the ball, and many, many hours of watching professional soccer.

I won't lie, it was often frustrating and demanding to need to train twice as much as the other kids to reach success on the pitch, but this past season has shown me that it was all worth it, and that there are coaches that value work ethic and passion above money and influence. Each season I notice exponential growth, looking back each time to see a player I can't even recognize as I move on to bigger and better things. But my strong work ethic on the pitch and passion for the game is not the only thing that separates me from other candidates.

I am also very solid academically, for I have 4.2 weighted GPA and have been making straight A's all throughout high school, even in my more advanced coursework. In the classroom I remain determined, and I know that my grades can aid in making me an exciting prospect, for they not only act as proof of my work ethic, intelligence, and yearning to learn and get better, but they also remove risk, and mean that a future coach would not have to worry about my grades and eligibility.

To put it plainly, my soccer career could be summarized with one quote: "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." -Tim Notke
