Personal Statement

MLS NEXT Winter Fest Showcase
Silver Lakes Sports Complex Norco, CA December 4-7, 2021 Full schedule can be found under Events.

I am currently rostered with the Michigan Wolves U17 Development Academy for the 2021-2022 season; participating in the MLS Next league. I am a coachable student-athlete who is open and receptive to criticism and am a natural leader on and off the field. What sets me apart from other athletes is my dedication and desire to be a better player today than I was yesterday.

I value my education and make academics a top priority. I have a recorded 4.0 GPA at the completion of the first quarter. During my Junior year I am taking accelerated coursework in Science and Math as well as college credit plus (CCP) coursework through Terra State Community College. With the support of my parents, I am researching  colleges that have an undergraduate program that best fits my academic needs as well as a soccer program that will allow me to continue playing the game that I love. 

Training four days a week limits my free time, but when I am able, I enjoy volunteering for our city’s annual food drive(s) and participating in a community service program through Rotary’s LINK/Interact Club. I also enjoy being in the weight room and reffing youth soccer for our local rec league.

Coach Pesallaccia of Tiffin University evaluated my athletic performance at a local ID camp saying, “Braxton showed some impressing skills in this camp. His defending skills were outstanding, winning headers and 1v1 duels, making tackles, and organizing the defense. He communicated with his teammates, got involved in possession, and read the game very well.” 

I am honored to have been able to compete at the MLS Next Showcase in Frisco, TX and truly enjoyed participating in all of the ID camps over the summer. I am ready to get to work this fall and am hopeful we will have a successful season!
