Personal Statement

 My name is Connor Cherry and I am a goalkeeper for the Lake Norman High School (LNHS) Varsity Soccer Team and the Lake Norman Soccer Club (LNSC) Force Blue Elite Team in Mooresville, N.C. My interest in soccer began during the summer of my 5th-6th-grade year. I had just recently stopped playing basketball, baseball, and football simply because they did not interest me anymore. The World Cup was playing in July of 2014 in Brazil and I began watching it on TV and getting more and more interested in the sport. At the end of the tournament, I decided to try out for the Lake Norman Soccer Club team. I made the team in August of 2014 and I was not yet fully committed to a position. So one day I was in practice and my coach shot a ball at me and instinctually, I saved it. At that point, I decided to become a goalkeeper.

I have been training and playing with LNSC for the past 5 years. Coach Jason Strange, the Goalkeeper Director with LNSC, is my goalkeeper coach. I have improved over the years as a goalkeeper I have been attending training sessions 3-4 times a week which has drastically improved my skill as a goalkeeper. Over these past few years, I have had a few injuries to overcome, small or major. But after each hardship, I bounced back and worked hard to be better than I was before. This past summer I attended a West Ham United Clinic and was invited to attend the North American Camp. After a successful camp, I was invited to train with the academy in London, I went in April of 2019 

I attended Mount Mourne IB School (an IBO World School) which was a better challenge and fit for me than compared to a traditional middle school. I completed freshman year with a 4.125 GPA taking all honors classes. I am currently a sophomore taking all honors classes and one AP class. I plan to go to an attending college and play soccer for the school and maybe even professionally. I am open to all possibilities when it comes to choosing a college and I hope to improve over the next 4 years, intellectually and in my soccer abilities, to propel me for College.
