What is “Passion”?
Passion is to never give up, to put 100% effort into what you love, to be enthusiastic about what you do! Passion guides and drives you in fulfilling your dreams and being successful in life!
All this describes me!
Hi, I am Philip Burckhardt, a sophomore at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia and a passionate soccer player. I started playing when I was just 3 years old and have not stopped since. I am 15 years old but playing on the U-17 team with the Lower Merion Soccer Club Travel Team(Sabertooth Rats) in the US Youth National League. I was the top scorer at the 2016 Region I Tournament in the U-15 age group with 7 goals and during the 2016 US Youth National Championship in Texas I made the Best XI team.
What is my goal?
My goal is to play D1 soccer but equally important to me is to get a great education. I am putting very hard work into school to get my GPA as high as possible. But also on the field you will see me working as hard as possible to improve my technique and become a soccer player that will add high quality to your team. If you give me the chance on your team, I will make you proud of your decision!
