My name is Cristian Schmidt and I am a 2022 Center-Mid and Center-Back from Wichita, KS.
I recently completed my Spring '21 club season with Wichita Warriors FC in the U-19 Heartland League in Kansas City under Coach Brian Shilling. This Winter, I have been invited to join the #1 ranked team in Kansas, Sporting Wichita Academy Elite 03 coached by Dallas Fiszel. We will be playing our first season in the Central States National Premier League.
This Fall, I begin my fourth varsity season as a starter for Southeast High School and have been named Co-Captain. Last season, I received honorable mention on the All-City Soccer League Roster and also lettered as the placekicker for varsity football team.
As a player, my strengths are tackling/defending, decision making, first touch, passing range, field vision and athleticism. Two areas I am continuing to develop are technical speed and acceleration.
I am currently in the Engineering program at Northeast Magnet High School and am interested in pursuing Environmental Science, Environmental Engineering or Sustainability as a degree.
Outside of school and soccer, I work part-time at a local Mediterranean restaurant, study and teach piano, and am a soccer referee.
I am excited to help my future college win a conference and national championship while simultaneously earning a degree and would love the opportunity to show you how I can fit into your team's playing style.
