My name is Tyler Robichaux and I am currently a sophomore in the Class of 2023. My goal is to find a college that fits my engineering and soccer interests.
I was a multi-sport athlete for several years growing up, but my passion is soccer. I have gone the extra mile to play soccer often, and it has been my choice, my drive, and my love of the game. Outside of year-round USYS club soccer, I have participated in High School Varsity Soccer (8th-10th), MLS and College ID soccer camps, ODP, and private/small group training during the summer breaks and other holiday breaks.
My work ethic is second to none, both on the field and in strength/conditioning training. I always give 110%, and I step out in front to lead in group settings. I am the player who listens to instruction once then leads the team after that. Most importantly is I lead by example and by being a team player.
I am engineering-minded with intuition and inquisition for how things work. I am also academically smart and a quick learner. My strengths are problem-solving, math, and critical thinking. It is no surprise that these academic strengths translate to field vision when playing soccer. I can anticipate the moves of my opponent, then defend and attack. The problem-solving and critical thinking that comes naturally to me in the classroom and on paper is the same skill set that helps me achieve great things on the soccer field. My college plans are to major in engineering, following in the footsteps of my parents. Most likely, I will choose electrical engineering or computer engineering, but I am open to other engineering disciplines as I start my college academic career.
I am the player who walks into a room of strangers and walks out, having had a blast meeting new people and making friends. I have a positive attitude towards people in general, both peers and adults, learning early that paying it forward with kindness results in confidence. I have a happy and fun disposition.
I am genuinely and undoubtedly that player who is well-rounded, athletically and academically talented, a leader, kind, and coachable—thanking God for the talents he has given me and using them to the best of my ability. A professional soccer coach told me that becoming a great soccer player is a marathon and not a sprint. My knowledge of the game and my skillset have grown over time. I am ready to continue the climb and take my game to the collegiate level.
