With my interest in sports medicine, it was the perfect way to bridge the gap between school and soccer. I am a hard worker in the classroom, keeping up with my work and maintaining high grades for as long as I can remember. That work ethic transfers directly onto the soccer field. I am willing to push myself and others, as well as help those around me.
As a midfielder, my job is to distribute the ball, and that is exactly what I do. I enjoy playing quick, accurate one touch passes and long balls over the top for teammates to run on to. As a midfielder I also am involved in almost every aspect of the game, making me a natural leader. With that leadership I know how to slow the play down. I can step on the ball and let my team reset, allowing us to find new openings, as well as play backwards in order for us to get forward. I can handle pressure well, and have no trouble playing with opposition on my back. With years of experience on my side, given that my playing career started at age 5, my mental reading of the game is just as strong as my physical presence on the field. I can take criticisms and adapt to whatever a coach wants, as well as help those around me adapt to new situations.
