My name is Braeden Richards, and I currently play for Blackwatch Premier Soccer Club (2004 Boys), a New York Red Bull affiliate program, in Albany, NY. Soccer has been a very influential part of my life, it has shaped me into who I am today and has helped me make decisions in my life. I started playing soccer when I was 4 years old, just playing in recreational leagues and enjoying my love for the game. I didn’t start competing competitively until I was around 7 years old, little did I know that would be the best decision I have made in my entire life.
Soccer is a passion of mine, seeking time throughout the day just to go outside and juggle the ball. I have always enjoyed playing the sport, and hope to continue to play the sport at a collegiate level, where both my leadership skills and my high work ethic will help tremendously. I also demonstrate these qualities on and off the field, showing them in the classroom as well since school is also a huge part of my life. With that being said I am just as motivated to get a good grade in a class as I am to get better with the ball, which have always been my top priorities.
