Personal Statement

My name is Makena McDermott and I am a 5’10” left-footed goalkeeper from Denver, Colorado. I am about to begin my Junior year at Wheat Ridge High School, where I am ranked 10th in my class with a 4.4 weighted GPA and a 3.96 unweighted GPA. I play for REAL COLORADO’s OLYMPICO 05G team, which is the club’s top non-ECNL team for my age bracket. I was also selected for the COLORADO SELECT ODP Player Pool in 2019, and plan to try out again next year with the goal of making the travel team.

Being a goalkeeper since age 8 has given me the confidence, perseverance, and humility needed to succeed in this high-pressure role. Over the years, I have developed my abilities to play under pressure, read the game, and be a leader to my teammates on the field. I have consistently been recognized for my foot skills in tight spaces, innate positioning within the goal and ability to inspire confidence in my teammates.

My goal is to play college soccer for a school where I can succeed academically and also make a positive impact athletically. I am committed to working hard and being a positive force on any team I am privileged to be a part of.
