My name is Nathaniel Smith. I began playing soccer at four years of age. I have played at both the high school and club level. My position is primarily center back, but I have also played outside back when needed. Since my junior year, I have been the captain of my high school team. I helped lead our team to our school's first area soccer championship. My strongest strength on the field is my ability to lead my team from the back line by directing them toward gaps to fill, when to press, and when to drop. I also encourage with more personal things like helping teammates keep a level head.
I currently have a 3.917 GPA and have a 27 on the ACT. I have taken several AP classes to help prepare myself for college such as AP language, AP chemistry and AP US history. I currently plan on majoring in biology, and then go into the medical field. My current goal is to play soccer at a college that can challenge me both academically and athletically.
