Hi, my name is Brennan Callahan-Stiles And I am 17 years old, in my junior year at the Aquinas Institute of Rochester, NY. I play for the 2002 Rochester Lancers Academy. Previously, I played at Lakefront FC Premier. During my Sophomore year I played as the starting goalie for Eastridge High School JV and Varsity when their keeper was injured. During the off season I like to train as often as possible. In the winter and spring I play in an indoor soccer league, attend both private and group goalkeeping sessions, and strength and cardio train multiple times a week (in addition to playing with my club). My club is a premier team that plays in the NY Thruway League against some of the other top teams in the region. We travel throughout the North-East participating in tournaments against top-tier teams. On the field I try to lead my team as best I can by providing vocal direction, a positive attitude, and by supporting them no matter the result of a game. I believe in carrying myself in a professional demeanor on and off the field.
I am a hard working student-athlete and take my education very seriously. While playing sports year round I maintain at least a 95% average and am enrolled in AP and Honors classes. I have received the Student Athlete Award from Eastridge High School and the Aquinas Institute every year I have played for them. At Aquinas I have earned awards in science as well as technology. In addition to school and soccer I participate in both Boy Scouts and a Venture Crew, am a lifeguard at my local YMCA and volunteer at least 50 hours a year. Community service is a value that is very important to me. Some service I do includes, aiding in church masses and clean ups, assisting disabled children ride horses at a local charity, and helping at the local food cupboard. In scouts I am on track to receive the Eagle award in by the end of this calendar year.
I plan on attending college for biomedical engineering or bioengineering with the hopes of becoming a plastic surgeon. A college with good academics and an undergraduate program in this field, coupled with a competitive soccer program is my top preference. I am very passionate about soccer and hope that I can continue to play after high school.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me!
