My name is Joey Fischer. I am a senior at Grand Haven High School in West Michigan. I am 17 years old. I am looking to further my education and passion for soccer at the collegiate level. In regards to my education, I am looking at a few different pathways for my major and career: Exercise Science, Sports Management and Graphic Design.
Soccer has been not only my passion but my outlet when life gets chaotic and stressful. Therefore, soccer is more than just a game to me. In my soccer career, I have had the privilege of playing at many different levels including MRL, NPL, National League and Academy. I played at the Academy Level as a starting central midfielder for 3 years. (Vardar Academy) Unfortunately, in 2017, I had to leave the Academy program to move to West Michigan where there are no soccer academy’s. After the move, I have played at the National League level for 3 years. I have also played at the High School level since I moved to Grand Haven. I am currently evaluating my options to play soccer at the college level. My philosophy throughout my entire soccer career is playing quick simple possession based soccer. Goals cannot be scored if we do not have the ball. This requires patience, unselfishness, a strong soccer IQ and commitment to my team and my coaches.
