I am a senior, class of 2019, at Fountain Valley High School in Southern California. My GPA is 3.0 and I am looking forward to moving on to college. Fountain Valley High has a student population of 3,558 and is ranked 83rd out of 1,510 public high schools in California and has an A+ rating for college prep.
On the pitch, I am the starting varsity goalkeeper for Fountain Valley HS and I play club soccer for The Orange County Surf in the Discovery League coached by Neil Armour. The OC Surf formerly West Coast is one of the top teams in California. I work hard on and off the field. In addition to club and high school practices, I train at Champions Quest, the premier college bound youth, strength and conditioning facility in Southern California. ( http://www.championsquest.com/ ) I recently received the 2018 “Ryan Bishel Commitment Award” this award is given annually to the top athlete at the academy.
To sharpen my goalkeeping skills I attend goalkeeper training during the week and on the weekends with Impact Goalkeeper Academy and Daniel Gonzales(former professional keeper and trainer for the MLS LA Galaxy), https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2012/04/12/chivas-keeper-coach-man-behind-kennedys-rise as well as Ryan Brown, (the current starting goalkeeper for Hope University). http://www.hiuroyals.com/roster/16/3/2605.php I have also trained with ), Didier Muñoz, (Head keeper coach, Panamanian Men's national team) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrICYJWCFwI I am 6’ 1” and weigh 180 lbs. I have an approach vertical jump of 31.5”. I have a very aggressive style of play and enjoy working with my defense to build attacks from the goal. One of my strengths is that I understand and read the game well and am able to organize my defense accordingly. I have had the privilege to be coached by Paul Bright, , (former Academy Manager & Community Sports Development Manager for Manchester United) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dPVRAEJz3VBWhKDDrKJEHK1tRrgoG05L/view who helped me develop my communication skills and my ability to read the game. I play in every tournament and college showcase in my area and guest play whenever possible to improve my game.
