I have been fortunate to have been chosen as the captain of most of the teams I have played on since starting classic at age 8, because I set an example for what the coaches want to see from the players. Later, after every season of ODP, Club, Highschool, they always complimented me on my work rate. I have been the one who sets the bar on the teams I have played on and have been responsible for keeping the team organized and ready on the field. I can play any position the coach needs support for and excel in that position. No one will work harder during practice or in a game. I’m loyal to my team mates and my coach and will always be there to provide friendship and camaraderie and leadership. This year I was voted my team's Coach's Player of the Year in high school and waiting for announcement on all League. Last summer, I was asked to play with a Brazilian 01 team in France at a FIFA International tournament and we made it to the semi-finals before being beaten by the Moscow Dynamos. Later in the summer, I was invited to play in a U17 tournament in Shanghai, China. We went 2-2 getting beat by France and England. My other big tournament was in Hawaii with my club team and we beat SoCal's state champs 3-1 and the AZ state champs 3-2. I was playing forward, but my best position is right defense or holding midfielder. I have consistently made the ODP traveling squad. I apologize for sounding like it's all about me, because it's not, but my coaches have said to talk about my strengths. I love playing soccer and hope you will consider me.
