My name is Bergen Loveless and I just finished my Sophomore year at Bishop Carroll Catholic High School in Wichita, Kansas. I have played competitive soccer since I was 8 years old and would love the opportunity to play in college. I am a leader on the soccer field and in the classroom. I take my actions on and off the soccer field very seriously, and I see myself as a competitor as I have always driven myself to accomplish my goals in life.
I feel I will be a good fit for any soccer program at the Collegiate level. I am intelligent, and I have always been thought of as a hard worker and as a "good kid!” I guess it may be a little unusual these days to put character above "fitting in," but for me I would have it no other way. I really have always just been my own person. I am close to my family and I believe in a strong team bond.
I currently play club soccer for the 03 Kansas RUSH Wichita Academy. I am a focused athlete playing soccer, basketball and golf. No matter what sport I play, I pride myself in my dedication and work ethic on and off the field. I consider myself one of the smartest soccer players on the field. I know the game, and my parents always tell me that I will be a great coach someday. I would describe myself on the soccer field as a player with great technique, very quick and an above average ability to use my left foot as well as I use my right. I have been called a "nat" on defense because I bug the heck out of forwards, but I consider one of my strongest qualities on the soccer field, my field vision. I love playing defense, but most of the time in high school I play and attacking midfielder. I like to aggressively bring the ball up the field and be an offensive threat as a defender. However, I am a versatile player as I play the middle of the field really well.
I am a straight A student. I work very hard to excel in the classroom. On my entrance exam to Bishop Carroll (Aspire - Pre-ACT) I scored in the 90th percentile in Mathematics, 82nd percentile in Science and 80th percentile in English (Reading Comprehension). As a freshmen I took 5 HONORS classes (Geometry, Chemistry I, Physics I, and 2 Honors Religion classes). I completed my freshmen year in the top 10 percent of the class (9 out of 298) and had a 4.17 GPA. This past year, my Sophomore year, I took all honors classes, and completed my sophomore year with a 4.28 GPA. My class ranking is 10 out of 284. My education is extremely important to me, and I plan on it ultimately being the driving force that will decide where I go to school and if I play soccer. I hope the two can come together, but I am realistic with my life goals and that is to obtain the best overall education I can possibly get. I am passionate about playing soccer in college, but even at 16 I know that someday I will not be able to play soccer anymore and will need to have a career. I want to make sure I go to a school that I can play the best soccer I can play, but get the best education I can get. This is very important to me.
