Soccer has been my passion since I first started playing at the age of 4. I started playing competitive soccer at age 7 and was selected for Weston FC's top team. Five years ago I was selected for the Weston 2004 DA team. I have been the starting center defensive midfielder for 4 years and the team has had great success and is ranked number 6 in the U.S. I have gained great playing experience as the team has competed in high level tournaments in Oviedo, Spain and Rome, Italy in addition to the DA league games and showcases. The team recently competed in the Copa Rayados tournament in Houston Texas against MLS teams and Mexican professional teams winning the Bronze division. The team won the DA Southeast Division title and is the only non MLS team to win its league and compete for a national championship in San Diego this June. Foe the 2019 season I am a part time player on the 2003 Academy and a starter on the 2003 Academy Reserves. I am very dedicated to improving my skills, strength and nutrition. When I am not training with the team I am participating in individual training both soccer and fitness. During the summer I attend high level camps such as Nike Voegelsinger, IMG, and last summer the ITS camp in Italy. I am committed to eating healthy and living a health lifestyle.
Academically, I have attended a private school since kindergarten, University School of Nova Southeastern University, where I have always excelled and am on the Directors Honor Role. I have and will continue to demonstrate the same commitment to my studies as I have to soccer.
I am a respectful teammate and player and very appreciative of the opportunity I have been given by my parents, coaches, and the Club to be able to play at one of the best soccer clubs in the country. I always try to be one of the first to arrive at training and be ready to go when the coach arrives. I take each training seriously and try to learn something each time I am on the field. Academically, I try to be a leader in my classes and help other students when they need assistance. Overall, I am respectful of others, try to help whenever I can where I see people need assistance, and lead a healthy lifestyle dedicated to improving my soccer skills and reaching the highest levels academically.
