I have been playing soccer since i can remember. According to my family, I've had a ball at my feet when I was very young, and made dents in our living room walls - i guess they thought it would better if I played on a pitch. Chasing the balls got me in trouble early on in the playgrounds, because for me, it was about getting and keeping the ball . At three, I started kid level soccer, and at eight, I stepped into the goal and have been training as keeper since then.
Math and science have always been my favorite subjects at school - I know i am seeking a great education in engineering - and an equally great soccer program where I can offer my college team my skills and abilities. I have had this goal - to play college level soccer - and am now hard at work and ready to show what I can do. I am a solid student at an excellent school and have played, trained and been part of both the RedBulls Youth Academy (u12, and u13) with a MLS contract, then by my choice on both my high school team (as starter GK both as freshman and sophomore) and now at Metropolitan Oval Soccer Academy (u16).
Coaches I have worked and trained with say that I am willing to work hard, am smart about the game, am willing and brave in goal, and that I train seriously and competitively. I love the game, and have played both in the States and in a wide range of camps abroad. I am a dual German / US Citizen and played one summer with the St Pauli Youth Academy (Hamburg, Germany). There, if I had chosen to stay, I was given the opportunity to live and train but felt that my path was here, in the States, at least through college.
The men in my family (grandpa, father, older brother) are all towering at and close to 6ft6; in the last year alone I grew nearly 6 inches to 5'7" - my doctor expects I too will be easily between 6'3 and 6'6. I am in excellent physical shape, working out regularly and have continually been told my overall skill in goal and game is developing well. Meantime, I study, concentrate on homework and soccer simultaneously (3x a week plus match) and I'm ready to demonstrate to schools and coaches what I can do between now and 2020.
Thank you very much,
