My goal in regards to playing college soccer is to play at a school where both myself and the team can thrive. I am a very team-oriented player, so team chemistry is important to me. While many talented players prefer to show off their skills, I am all about winning and learning from my mistakes. Whatever it takes to achieve success, I will do. Education is also important to me. While I am undecided on what I'd like to study, the field of mathematics interests me. There are several key aspects that set me apart from other players. First, I am usually the smartest player on the pitch. In the classroom, I flourish, and it translates well to soccer, a game that requires more of you mentally than physically. Second, I am coachable. A lot of talented players that I've met refuse to listen to their coach's advice, but I'm not like that. I realize that I make plenty of mistakes, and I'm willing to grow from them. Third, I am a hard worker and extremely focused on the task at end. While many of my teammates goof off during practice, I'm busy thinking about how I can apply each drill to a game. To me, soccer is like a game of chess. The one who can plan for every single move is victorious. Fourth, I am a winner. Any team that I've played on has been tremendously successful. For example, my club team has reached the State Cup final two years in a row. Even during practice, my team wins most of the time, simply because my competitive nature drives me further. Finally, I am a gifted leader. Ever since I was a little kid, my teammates have looked to me for leadership. For the past 6-7 years, I have been captain of every team I've played on, whether it be club, futsal, or high school. While I am typically pretty quiet, I love to lead my team. If you, as a coach, feel that I could be a good fit with your team, I would love to connect with you.
