Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. I am a highly motivated athlete and student with leadership skills. I have been playing soccer since age 4. I started playing club soccer at age 9 and continue to play for CFC throughout high school. I was grateful to have the opportunity to play soccer in London with CFC when I was 12 years old. I am a dedicated player with soccer being a big part of my life. Soccer is not just a sport to me. It has taught me many life lessons that I use everyday.
I feel I have a lot to add to a college roster. This is what college coaches have said about my skills after my video evaluation:
Athleticism: Very athletic, great size and speed combo
Mobility: Covers a lot of pitch defensively, loves to make a run forward, shifts hips quickly in 1v1 situations
Range of Passing: Finds difficult passes well, direct player
Technical Speed: Settles ball quickly in order to make next decision
Tackling/Defending: Great slide tackle technique, many successful last ditch challenges
Attacking Play: Great set piece option with size and athletic ability
I have played outside back for my club team for the first 6 years. I play more center back now that I am bigger and stronger. I enjoy playing either position. This past season, as a junior, I was the starting center back on my high school soccer team. Our varsity team only gave up 2 goals in the Massachusetts State Cup Tournament only to lose in the semi-final round on penalty kicks after a 0-0 tie in regulation.
I feel I have great vision of what’s going on around me on the field. I have an accurate first touch because I know where I'm going with the ball before I get it. I am an aggressive, fast and physical player who likes making runs on the outside when opportunities open up. I love being part of a team including all the bonds and friendships that are created with my teammates. I would love the opportunity to be a part of your team.
As a student, I apply myself and work hard to maintain my grades while staying busy outside of the classroom. I am an honor student currently with a 4.0 GPA (weighted). I am part of my high schools history and stock clubs. I am as passionate about my education as I am of soccer. I am excited about beginning my career path once I attend college.
