I have been playing soccer since I was 3 years old. As I have developed as a soccer player over the years I have really grown to love the game. I am determined to continue to grow as a player and aspire to play at the collegiate level. The opportunity to play at the professional level would be my dream.
I would like to attend a college that is academically challenging and also allows me to compete at a high level of soccer. I am a very hard working student and I challenge myself academically in high school by taking high level courses. I also balance my time well playing club soccer, high school varsity soccer, and I am a member of the Maryland Olympic Development Team.
I have excellent drive and determination on the field. I have a strong shot and great ball placement passing abilities. I have great movement on and off the ball. I am always checking my surroundings and aware of what my options are. Playing on three different teams has allowed me to learn how to adapt to different coaching styles and work with a variety of teammates on the field. I feel this will help me when transitioning to playing at the college level. I have worked with many great coaches and have taken their advice along the way to improve as a player.
I am currently the captain of my travel soccer team. I lead by example and always give my best effort on the field. I have a true passion for the game. I made my high school varsity team as an incoming freshman. This helped me elevate my level of playing and allowed me to compete at a higher level. I work hard to motivate my teammates in a positive manner to give 100% on the field. I am a fierce competetor and will train hard to elevate my performance in the game.
I also love sharing my love of the game with others. I have participated in a peer coaching program with my soccer club that has allowed me to give back to a community that has given so much to me. I enjoy seeing kids learn the game of soccer and take pride in their success on and off the field. I feel it is important to be a great role models for others.
I want to attend a college that is the best fit academically while allowing me to play soccer at the same time. I am open to all options and I am hopeful that I will find the best college for me. I look forward to meeting and working with new coaches and players in the future and continue to grow in the game I love.
