I have been playing sports for as long as I can remember. I started playing soccer at the young age of three and baseball at the age of five, but soccer had me hooked since day one. I love the competitiveness that soccer provides and the feeling of winning as a team. However, soccer is more than just a game for me it has taught me life lessons that can be applied both on and off the field. Soccer has also provided me with some opportunities that I would not have otherwise and for that I am grateful. Through soccer, I have been able to see different parts of the country and play against some of the most competitive teams. My ultimate goal is to be a collegiate student-athlete and prepare myself for life after soccer. I plan to be a Finance Major but understand that being a collegiate student-athlete is not easy. However, I’m prepared to take on this challenge and believe I have the qualities to succeed both in the classroom and on the field. On the field, I love being a playmaker with the vision to set up my teammates. I believe a player should be coachable, versatile, and understand the importance of the team above self. As a student I'm a quick learner, good with time management, can work independently or as a group and take pride in my work. To help prepare myself academically I chose to attend a college preparatory high school with a history of academic excellence. To help prepare myself athletically I chose to play on highly competitive teams at the club, high school, and state level. I truly believe that all of the decisions that I have made in preparing for my athletic and academic future along with the support of my family will help me grow into an excellent collegiate student-athlete and I would be a valuable asset to any college soccer program. I only ask to be given the opportunity to prove myself.
