What I aspire to do is to learn how to play as a unit for a whole team effort, which will have a positive influence on the team. Ever since I was a kid, playing soccer with my friends, I loved this sport with a passion. I also played basketball at the time, but I knew that soccer was the way for me to go. My goal, in the end, is to be the best that I can be, no matter the cost. I want to be a team player and respect the game while respecting others too. I know that I can be a good candidate for the team because I know how to be a team player. I was fortunate to have the experience of being the starting goalie for Coach Fischer at Weehawken High School in my sophomore and junior year. In my senior year, I was given the opportunity to play at Fort Lee High School under Coach Demba and Coach Geris, who helped me develop my game to the next level. We learned to play as a unit so that we could win and bond as the season went on. This led us to accomplish the title of Big North American League Champions, which was given to us because of our hard working ethic and teamwork. I went to the College of St. Joseph's Men's Soccer program for the 2017 season because I was impressed with the program that Coach John White had developed. I was grateful for the opportunity to further develop my game under his leadership. It was a welcome surprise that as a freshman I was named starter for the season and was rewarded with being named to the NAIA All-Conference First Team. There has been some changes in the program that has lead me to seek other opportunities. A difference between myself and other recruits is that I want to play for a much bigger meaning. I know that when you play, there are a lot of other people watching you, especially the youth. My major, Early Childhood Education, is about teaching the youth the primary aspects of how to be successful in life and what they need to learn when they get into the real world. I would like to give them an example on and off the field on how to be a true player and what it means to respect yourself, the team, the coaches, and school all at one time. I would like to be a role-model for them so that the team gets better recognition while the school does also. That is what I aspire to do for myself, my team, and my school.
