Hello, my name is Connor Kraus and I am an outside back in the class of 2023. My main goal is to play four years of college soccer on a competitive team, at any level. I attend and play soccer at Marquette University High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Marquette is known for its rigorous, college prep academics and top sports programs. My biggest soccer achievement is starting on Wisconsin's ODP state team for the past three years. I enjoyed playing with and against the best players in the region, and learning from the many different ODP coaches who have helped me grow as a player. I've been with my club (North Shore United) since U6 and I've been a starter since U10. We have been an MRL Premier 2 team for the past 3 years.
I'm a good candidate for your team because I am a leader, determined to win, and a great communicator. I keep my head up and maintain a positive attitude when things aren't going our way. I will turn the game around rather than blame others. One of my biggest strengths is my mental game. I use my abilities of anticipation, decision making, and overall soccer IQ to my advantage.
