My name is Rachel Young. I am a Senior at Shadow Ridge High School in Surprise Arizona (Class of 2019). Since the age of 5 my passion has been soccer. I am an active club player, and a high school player. I am proud to say I have participated in the the Elite Club National League for three years with the SC del Sol Soccer Club and one year with the U.S. Soccer Development Academy. Last year we were ranked number 4 in the Southwest Conference, playing against some of the best teams in the country. This year I’m playing on the SC del Sol U-18/19 Development Academy Team.
Sports are not the only exciting things in my life, I also excel in the classroom. I have taken several honors courses and will continue to take them throughout my high school experience. My goal in college is to pursue pre-med studies. I am also involved in many service projects. I could not do everything without the support of my family and close friends. My younger sister is also a student athlete playing soccer, and is my biggest fan. My dad is my rock. He is an athlete, and continues to play racquetball on a competitive level. I am proud to say I received a lot of my athletic abilities from my dad, and from my mother who was a National Champion Scottish Highland Dancer. My goal is to play at a college level. I understand the level of commitment, hard work, and discipline that is needed to achieve my goal. I am eager for the opportunity to introduce myself personally to your program. I look forward to hearing from you in the days to come and wish your program much success! Please let me know if you have any questions.
