Personal Statement

After playing in Italy for a year (2013-2014), soccer became a true passion for me. Due to my parents work, I have had the opportunity to live and travel extensively in Europe (I've been to 15 different countries). As a result, my knowledge of the game far surpasses the average American player. My time in Italy brought with it a new view on how Italians technically, tactically, and physically approach the game. At first, they were superior to me in all categories, and it took nearly the entire year finally to understand their way of play. Italians emphasize passing and smart movement rather than all-out physical domination. Technically, the Italians taught me how to control the ball and dribble under pressure. After I came back to the States, I had a deeper understanding of the game and also of European and Italian history. This interest in European history has led me to study the connection between the history of soccer to European growth and expansion. In College, I want to get the best education I can. I bring hard work and dedication to any team I'm a part of, I feel my strongest attributes are: my passing accuracy and range, knowledge of the game, and ability to read situations and adjust. I'm currently working on my strength and speed.
