I am an excellent candidate to be a collegiate athlete because I am a versatile player. Something that sets me apart from other candidates is my ability to play different positions on the soccer field. Throughout my many years of competing in the sport, I have learned how to adapt to playing in unfamiliar situations. My coaches in club, interscholastic and tournament level teams know me as someone who is coachable, competitive, and compliant when given instructions on and off the field. In addition, I am always in the best physical condition and have the most endurance compared to most opponents, allowing me to play for extended periods of time. One of the things that helps me stay in great shape is my participation in competitive indoor and outdoor track since middle school. Academically, I am a member of the National Honor Society chapter at my school and have challenged myself by taking Honors and Advanced Placement classes for all of my English, math, science and history classes.
Something I've done during my soccer career was play overseas in Ireland for Montco Select in the Limerick Cup. Our team won the title in a penalty shootout. This experience was not only important to me as a soccer player, but also as a person. That trip was my first time ever leaving America and I had to learn to get around and navigate in a new place. This experience sets me apart from other potential athletes because very few can say they went to another country as a youth soccer player and came home with hardware.
