I have loved soccer since the age of 5. I first played on a Kindergarten team in Bozeman. Since then, it has always been my favorite thing to do. Ever since high school, it's been my passion. I played on an Elementary Recreational team from 2nd - 6th grade, and had nowhere else to go. There were no other available traveling teams, and Rocky Mountain doesn't have soccer. So I found my love for soccer again at a church camp during my 8th grade summer when I juggled with some people there. I realized that I could play for the Powell High School soccer team in high school, and just travel the 20 minutes over there after school. So I started practicing at home. I practiced all the way until Freshman year spring finally came. I loved it even more than anticipated. This being the first time I had truly played on a competitive team, and it was an eye opener. I worked as hard as I could, and continued to practice whenever given the chance. It payed off too, because I quickly got to playing as a sub for the Varsity team, and was one of the only two Freshman to letter on it. After the spring season, I spent even more time practicing alone. I played for Heart Mountain United traveling team, and have since been doing my absolute best to get myself in the best possible condition. I practice every day at home on various different things, such as shooting, dribbling, and juggling. I go to indoor practices in Cody on Thursday nights from 8:00-10:00 where we scrimmage the entire time with lots of people who have played college level. It's worth the 45 minute drive one way. While this is a very in-depth backstory of how I came to love soccer, I find it necessary because it shows how I am continually dedicating myself more and more to the sport. Playing college soccer is my main goal at this moment in time. I can hardly contemplate what it'd be like to graduate with no more soccer to play. This makes me a desirable recruit because I'm not just good at soccer, I'm good because I put my life into it, and that isn't ever going to change. You can ask anyone who's ever coached me, I'm not there to mess around. I'm desperate to constantly be improving, and I take every step necessary to get farther. I listen to my coaches. I respect my coaches. There are plenty of players who certainly don't respect their coaches, and it's obvious to see because they don't change how they play when someone points out a flaw. I'm flexible and willing to try new angles at the game. Something that I see lots of players neglect is endurance. I can't say the same for myself. I enjoy cross country, and I'm pretty decent at it. I like pushing myself, and increasing my endurance, because I know it too comes into play during soccer. It's especially important for someone like me who plays outside midfielder generally. While I dedicate myself entirely to soccer, I make sure I get everything done for school correctly and completely. Throughout high school, I've only gotten two B's, both of which were an 89%. Past school, I've even started making a YouTube channel based entirely on soccer. I'm consistently working on new videos to post. You can check out my channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1HWPms3waHkizqV-5MfTLw. I do honestly believe that I'm perfect for a college team. I have potential to be reached, and dedication far beyond the likes of most. There are plenty of people in my small town who think I have no hope of ever getting anywhere past high school soccer. Help me prove them wrong. Help me accomplish my dreams. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
