My name is Antonio Casarez. I am a junior in high school and have been playing soccer since I was seven years old. I fell in love with the game, and have not stopped playing since. There have been many challenges along the way. I remember breaking my arm in the seventh grade and having to sit on the bench for that season. This was a very big test of my patience. It was very tough knowing that I could help my team win, but I was unable to do that with my broken arm. This obstacle allowed me to view the game from a different perspective, and become a better teammate. I love to win, compete, and continue to improve my game. Throughout my soccer career, I have learned to work with many different people. This has helped me and my ability to work in a team or small group on the field, or in other parts of my life. Going into college, I want to further my education and study business and/or economics. Playing college soccer has always been a dream of mine. I am willing to work hard and commit myself. I will do whatever I need to do, to play at the next level and help my team win games and titles.
