My name is Xander Christian and I am currently a Sophomore at Bishop Miege High School, a private Catholic College Prep, in Roeland Park, Kansas.
Since I first started playing soccer at the age of 6 years old I fell in love with everything about the game. Up until High School I was a multi-sport athlete playing competitive baseball, basketball, cross-country, soccer and taekwondo. Of all the sports I’ve played soccer has always been my passion and my first love; so, once I got to High School I decided that soccer was going to be where I devoted all my time athletically.
Soccer has always been part of my everyday life whether it be training, playing or watching club games and professional games. I love to study the games I watch so that I can continue to learn and grow not just as a player but as a teammate. I’m an incredibly hard worker on and off the pitch. Rarely does a day go by where I’m not doing something soccer related. I don’t believe in playing selfish soccer or soccer for personal accolades - the team always comes first. I love to create opportunities for my teammates whether it is through a perfectly played pass, cross or from making a run that opens the field.
For the last 7 years I have been playing competitive, year round club soccer. I’m a very versatile player and utilized in a number of positions (attacking mid, defensive mid, center mid, outside mid and striker) but I feel like I contribute the best as an attacking mid or outside mid.
My goal is to continue to play competitive soccer in college while working towards my undergraduate and or graduate degrees. I’m looking for a school that will allow me to be an active participant academically and athletically. I am a devoted learner and will put in the necessary time and hard work required to reach my full potential and be the best student athlete I can be.
I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about your program and what I can bring to your team and your school.
Thank you for viewing my profile and for your consideration.
