Hi, my name is Mackenzy Gipson. I am a senior at Heritage high school and will be graduating in May 2022. I have played soccer since I was five and fell in love with the sport immediately and have always surrounded myself with the game. I am known on the field best for my speed and ball control. I love to blow away the competition by receiving a ball and taking it down the line, or sprinting down the field and receiving a cross. My primary positions are usually forward or midfield positions. The spot where I exceed the most is attacking mid. When I play attacking mid I get a deeper view of the game and have a much better view of the field and know where the ball is going to go, and tactics are best shown here. To take me farther in soccer when I am off the field I make sure I’m hitting the gym and running so that I can be at my best. Soccer has changed me both on and off the field. It has taught me honor, commitment and leadership. I am very coachable and desire constructive criticism and feedback from my coaches. My teammates would say that I am a team leader and motivator. I have also gained so many lasting friendships from various soccer teams I have been on..
As of right now I don't know where my education will take me, however I am very interested in criminology, sports medicine, and school counseling.
