My name is Rafael Ponce de Leon and I am the starting varsity goalkeeper for The Pennington School for both my Freshman and Sophomore year and also play for PDA U17(playing up a year). What makes me stand out from the rest is my leadership ability and gaining respect from others. I have been a captain for 8 seasons in total and are a strong believer that leadership is key to a team win. Off the field what makes me different is my academic focus and my attitude towards others. I believe that I have a solid personality as I always look to include all, greet every person on campus, and being grateful for those in my life.
