Soccer has always been my favorite sport, ever since I was a little kid. I began playing competitive soccer in a league at age 3 and my love for playing soccer only grew as I got older. Throughout my life, you always found me with a ball in my hand. Even throughout high school, I was a 4 sport-varsity athlete, playing soccer, baseball, tennis, and basketball. The moment I realized my potential at the goalkeeper position, as an underclassmen, I worked hard, each and every day to get better. Playing soccer at the college level is something I have always wanted to do, and I am beyond thrilled to have the opportunity.
Playing goalkeeper suits my skill set very well. Being 6 foot 5, goalkeeper is the one position that will allow you to utilize your body to help you perform at a high level. Another great quality I value as a goalkeeper is my hands and quick reflexes. These skills have only gotten better with time, as I use my hands and reflexes in all sports. My strong arms and legs are also useful when it comes to distribution and counter-attacks. Being able to throw the ball to midfield and punt to the opposite 18 yard box has been a weapon that has helped my team for the past few years.
Aside from soccer, I have high goals in the classroom. I have always been a student at the top of my class, winning many academic awards throughout my academic career. For the past few years, I have dove deep into the field of Healthcare and Rehabilitation, expanding my knowledge to ultimately help me major in Exercise Science and obtain my Doctorate in Physical Therapy. I currently have an internship at CORE Physical Therapy to gain even more experience in the field.
My arguably most important quality is my competitiveness. You will not find me ever take a play off, as I always give my 100% effort no matter the score or situation. This can mainly be accredited to my passion and will to win.
