I started playing indoor soccer when I was three years old and from then on I fell in love with the sport. Ever since then I have been playing soccer yearly and I love it even more now than ever. At 3 years old, I was placed on an indoor co-ed soccer team, where my specialty was running after the ball when out of bounds and handing to the referee. From those early thrills and smiles, my love for the game has blossomed. Working on skills, the camaraderie of the team, and the laughs and joy of the game are just some of the reasons I love this sport so much! As a player, I have always been blessed with a natural ability to see the field well and find my teammates with open passes, while playing with a high amount of confidence as to not worry about if I am the one scoring or the one setting up the goals. I am not a rah rah guy that says a lot to my teammates but I do lead by example on the field and off of it.
One of the biggest concerns for me are my academics. I know that they very important to me succeeding in life. My parents have always instilled in me the importance of my academics and I have to credit them for blessing me with the brains and for giving me the help I need. Currently, I have a 4.2 GPA and will continue to work hard to maintain this GPA throughout high school and college. I am going to be just as excited to be in a college classroom and campus as I will be on a college field playing.
Although I really enjoy playing soccer and everything that goes along with the sport, I do enjoy other things in life. My family and I have been going to the beach since I can remember and my love for the beach, especially with my name Ocean, continues to this day. I enjoy surfing, swimming, and checking out the wildlife while relaxing in the warm sun. I am active in my local church, where we help the homeless, participate in festivals, and partake in the sacraments at mass. Yet, my favorite pastime other than soccer is traveling! I have to give a huge thank you to my parents for opening up my mind regarding the world. My mother is half Peruvian, and we w traveled there this past summer to visit family that I had never met or seen. It was Awesome! Prior to this past summer, in 2016 we also traveled to Europe as a family and we even got to go to a European Championship game, where I could not believe the fantastic atmosphere of the crowd inside the stadium and even outside! These trips made me realize that I would love to continue to travel throughout my life.
Currently, I am playing for Arsenal FC in Temecula, Ca. My coach there is Kevin Koptieff. We will be finishing our season soon but high school season is just now beginning.
