Hard working at sports and academics. Playing soccer year around since age of 9. Desire to play at college level while I pursue a degree in either engineering or medicine. I hope to grow a few more inches, however, I never let my height keep me from my objective.
Tony DiCicco-" To whom it may concern;
I have just had the opportunity to train and observe Preston Mercer at my SoccerPlus Goalkeeper School. Preston was in our prestigious National GK Training Center Program (NTC) and was in the top group in the camp.
Preston is not tall but uses his athletic quickness and agility to great use. He deals with crosses well above average using quickness to get to balls and good power to win crosses that many bigger keepers would not attempt.
Preston reads the game well and deals with through balls and breakaways very effectively. He is brave and focused and passionate about his goalkeeping. His work rate is exceptional and when all is said, done and evaluated, he is a very good keeper and certainly capable of playing a good standard of college soccer. I am also impressed by Preston the person and feel he is the type of young man that coaches enjoy working with and also the type of young man that coaches want on their team.
I urge you to see Preston play to see if he is right for your program. Also, don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to discuss Preston further.
