Hello, my name is Wesley Wise. I have played soccer throughout my entire life. I started playing when I was five years old and instantly fell in love with the sport.
I would like to play soccer at the collegiate level. I believe that my dedication, hard work, and talent will help me compete at the next stage. I work extremely hard on the field and just as hard in the classroom. My goal is to push myself to become a better soccer player so I can contribute to a team at the collegiate level. During my sophomore year, I was able to earn a starting spot on my high school team, a team that leads VISAA Division I schools for championship appearances in the last 20 years. As well, I was captain of my club team and was able to produce 25 goal (10 assists and 15 goals) to help lead my team to an undefeated 8-0 record. I use my size and speed as a forward to help contribute on the attack whether I take the ball in and cross it on the goaline (endline), or whether I am playing back to goal and am able to turn and get a shot off quickly.
In the classroom I have been able to maintain an "A" average and a 4.1 weighted GPA this year. My cumulative GPA through my first 3 semesters of high school is a 3.93. I took certain classes throughout the summer in order to create time to play club and high school soccer while maintaining good grades.
One of the strongest aspects of my game is my ability to head the ball with precision and power, especially off crosses and corner kicks. I can adapt to changes the defense makes and read key situations very well. I always try to bring my teammates up rather than bring them down and I am always positive on the field.
