My name is Jocelyn Clark, and as a collegiate student athlete I am trying to look for new ways to challenge myself not only on the soccer field, but in the classroom as well. I’d like to study psychology as a student, with the hopes of having a job as a school psychologist or counselor. In the classroom, I always challenge myself by setting very high standards for myself.
As well as the classroom, I am a quick learner on the soccer field. I think that I am an easily coachable player with a great ability to adapt to any formation or any game plan to follow. As a result of this, I am able to adjust to any position that I am put into on the field. I am able to use both feet equally as well, unlike some cases where players can sometimes be limited to using one foot.
In addition, I am also a leader by example. I started my high school career as a captain, which having a freshman as a captain was very unlikely. My freshman year of high school, my team went 1-17-2, which isn’t the greatest record to have. Since that season ended, my coach and I helped some of the less experienced players get to that next level by extra training and extra coaching. The next year, my sophomore year, we went 20-1-2, a much better score than the previous year, with me leading the scoreline with 40 goals for the season.
