My name is Conor Monahan and I am currently in my sophomore year at the Stamford American International School in Singapore. In this statement, I will be outlining my aspirations and goals.
It has been one of my biggest dreams in life to pursue a highly academic college education after high school while also playing soccer at the top level. I am looking for a college with a strong academic program combined with a top soccer program.
Throughout both middle school and high school, I have done well academically. I was listed on the Dean's List in grade 7 and 8 while being listed on the Honor Roll in grade 9.
I was introduced to soccer at the young age of 3 and have been loving it ever since. Throughout my childhood, I played for both club teams and school teams.
At the age of 12, I played for Singapore Cricket Club before joining JSSL FC at the age of 14 (2018). In my freshman year of high school, I joined my school’s Varsity U19 team as the youngest player on the team. I scored 4 goals throughout the season and was the top goal scorer.
After completing my second year on the Varsity U19 team as a sophomore, I managed to rack in 6 goals and finish as the top scorer for the second year in a row.
I am currently playing for the JSSL FC Elite Under 16 team while playing for my school's Varsity U19 team. I primarily play as the center attacking midfielder for both teams.
Some soccer achievements include my U14 school team winning the ACSIS league in 2016. Our JSSL U14 team won the JSSL league in 2018 and 2019. Our JSSL U14 team won the Royal Selangor Cup in 2018. My varsity high school team came third in the ACSIS League in 2018.
I am a very sociable, easy-going person and can fit into any squad. I have a deep passion for soccer.
