I began to play for my local club team at the age of 10 and in today’s standards that is rather old to begin soccer. I was a step behind all my friends/teammates but through hard work and dedication over the course of the following years I was able to become an advanced player and starter. This concept of hard work sticks out most in the context of soccer for me. Whether it be a new club season or the start of another high school season, I set goals for myself and work hard in training to try and achieve my vision. On the field my main focus is to talk to my teammates as much as possible and run my defensive backline so we can be both sturdy and compact. I take the offseason just as serious as the regular high school season; I am a player for the FC Revolution Celtic club team and I create my personal workout and meal plans that help expand my athletic abilities during the winter, spring and summer months. This process of thinking does not stop with soccer. In school I set goals and follow my daily routine which allows me to earn the grades I strive for. Outside of soccer and school I try to broaden my perspective by getting out of my comfort zone and trying new things. I am a member of the animal rescue league and I try and work with the animals there when I have the necessary time to. I believe that my work ethic, athletic skill and my well roundedness is what is going to aid me in getting into a program that is looking for what I have to offer.
