Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
In the spring of 2018, I graduated and received my diploma from Rowland Hall, a college preparatory high school, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Currently, I am attending Richmond University in Leeds England majoring in International Sports Management, and am a player at the Richmond International Academic and Soccer Academy. We train every day, play matches in the British Universities and Colleges Sports League. We supplement our training, with daily sessions of strength training and conditioning, Pilates and proprioception sessions. I currently have a 3.6 GPA at Richmond University. This March, 2019, I had the opportunity to go to Finland and play matches with some academy teams from Kemi and Oulu, Finland. It was a very rewarding experience, and a great opportunity.
I am passionate about soccer and a devoted player of the game. My collegiate goals include playing on college team where I can contribute to the success of the team and continue my love for this sport. I have aspirations to play on as high a level as I can possibly achieve. I am an extremely coachable player; I respect and feel privileged to have had the coaches that I've had over the years. Being a team player in high school and competition, I worked well both leading the team in high school as the center defender, and being an anchor for my competitive team as an outside defender. Currently, I play left and right wing with RIASA. I value good sportsmanship and believe the team always comes first.
Some of my memorable experiences include playing on premier level club soccer teams during my club/competitive career. At Rowland Hall, I was a starting varsity player as a freshman and throughout my high school career, earning 4 Varsity letters. As a sophomore, junior and senior, I was recognized and honored as an All-Region and All-State 1st team player. I received the Coaches Award during my sophomore and senior years of high school, was the RH Team Captain in my senior year, and received the Winged Lion Athlete Award. I played 4,690 career minutes at Rowland Hall, playing every minute of every varsity game during my 4-year tenure, except 1 match, which according to my high school coach, is a Rowland Hall record of any soccer player in its history.
Lastly, as a volunteer youth soccer coach from 8th grade through my senior year, coaching both boys and girls teams, I learned leadership, patience, and the ability to listen and communicate well with both the young players and their parents. It provided me with an opportunity to be a positive role model, and I hope that my contributions strengthened my players’ love of the game, and taught them valuable skills. I hope to find a place to play where I will be a good fit for the team and college, and where I can pursue my academic goals.
I have been so fortunate and feel very privileged to have had such great opportunities to further my love of this sport and the game.
