Hello coaches! I am John Alcorn, a 5’11” Center Back in the Class of 2022. I attend Winters Mill High School where I have started every varsity game since freshman year. I am a determined worker on and off the field with the drive and determination to achieve more than greatness. While not on the field I get good grades in the classroom, which I can assure I will always be academically eligible to play. Although experience can help me grow as a player, I pride myself on being teachable and listening to any advice that can help improve my mental and physical game. I always ask questions when I feel I am missing something that can better not only me, but also a teams' outcome. You can count on me to be a leader on and off the field, to demonstrate good character and be there for the ones that need help. I am the first one on the field, and the last one off. Whether that is a practice or a game. I wear my heart on my sleeve and play my heart out every minute I am on the field. I’m the first to a fallen teammate and will make sure to give them a hand when they need it. You can be assured that if you need me to make the tough, gritty plays on the field that I will do what is asked. I pride myself on never backing down from a ball in the air and I find pride in assists just as much as a goal. I believe in a team-first mindset with the common goal to do my part and then more. I received All-County Honorable Mention my Freshman year, but to me that was just a stepping stone to work harder at each practice. The following season I earned Second Team All-County as a Sophomore. My goal is to be nominated First Team All-County for my Junior and Senior years. My sophomore year I was chosen to be Captain of the team. This was an honor as I pride myself on leadership and the ability to motivate teammates. I will continue to grow as a player mentally and physically to improve my communication skills as that is a big roll of being a Captain and Center Back. I look forward to making a big impact on my future team and am thankful for every minute I play.
