Soccer has had a significant impact on my life since I was born. I have been playing the game I love since I was four years old, working my way up to the athlete and the man I am today. I have a strong competitive edge and I push myself in all assets on and off the field to improve my strength and ability. As I am a student athlete, I prioritize both my academics and my athletics to ensure I maximize my potential in both of these practices. Effective coaching and development from club soccer prepared me well for high school soccer, as I was able to start at left back as a freshman and sophomore for my school. I have learned to become a team player in all situations, win or loss. I have overcame hardships like when my club team lost a heartbreaking Region 1 tournament final in which a win would have qualified us for Nationals. I believe I have what it takes to play soccer at the college level and continue to develop my play to fit the needs of my current teams and my teams in the future.
