I have played soccer since I was 5 years old. I played soccer every year since then. It has been a lifelong dream to play soccer in College. My Dad played soccer at the collegiate level, and he has always encouraged and pushed me. Deciding to play in college, however, was my own decision and a natural extension of having played all my life. I am extremely passionate about soccer, both on the field and off the field. I am very motivated and hardworking and am constantly striving my hardest to improve and stand out.
Freshman year of High School I decided to run Cross-Country in the offseason to help stay in shape for soccer. I have naturally been very athletic all my life and both my parents are very athletic as well. Despite not being focused on cross-country as soccer was and always has been my main sport, I still broke the freshman record and finished 16th in my region. The top 10 go to State. This year as a Junior I am ranked #5 in the region and am the 61st top recruit in the State. However, soccer is and always has been my passion and my dream. I eat very well and stay working out, not just with running but also working the whole body, especially muscles and groups that are used in soccer as soccer uses just about every muscle.
I am extremely competitive and will try my hardest, and even pushing past what I thought my hardest was when competing against other people. I want to be the best, both on and off the field. Academics are very important as is reflected in my GPA and the fact that I scored a 26 on my ACT as a Sophomore. I am homeschooled, but have experience in the classroom setting, which I feel gives me a boost as I have both the self-motivation to teach myself, but can also learn and work in a classroom setting.
