I am a 6'1, 155 lb. Center Forward currently playing for Tynecastle FC. I am a team Captain.
I live in Arlington, WA and attend Arlington High School, Class of 2017. I can bring many things to a team. I am a dedicated and loyal person and teammate. Physically, I bring speed and great ball control up top with accurate shots and ability to score with both feet. My fastest mile time is 4:58.
I prefer a school in Washington or as close as possible. I am also interested in schools in Oregon, Idaho and California.
Financial assistance is important to me.
I am looking for a school with a good Kinesiology/ Sports Science program. I have been playing soccer since age 4 and have an undying love for this sport. It has always been my dream to play soccer in college and beyond, if possible!
I have been a varsity starter for four consecutive years, and have been awarded the Golden Boot Award for most goals scored each year.
I was announced as a 2014 Washington Youth Soccer Challenge Cup Golazo Best XI Honoree in the U15 Division 2 category. I finished my Sophomore season with a second consecutive "Golden Boot Award" leading my team with 15 goals and was also named 1st Team All Conference, 1st Team All League, 2nd Team All Area and Offensive MVP. I just finished my last high school season. Our team made it to the second round of Districts. I finished this season with 15 goals and was chosen for 1st Team All Area.
In spring of 2015, I attended an EXACT Soccer NorCal Spring Regional 15 ID Camp in Dublin, California where I was evaluated by Coach David Stockton of Cal State Monterrey Bay.
