After tearing my ACL my sophomore year, it really hit me how important soccer is in my life. Throughout my entire full year of recovery, I learned what it takes to work hard and fight against the odds. After being cleared just in time for my Junior season, I returned to the sport I love as a starting defender, received All-Conference Honorable Mention, Quad Cities Times All-Area Honorable Mention, Dispatch Argus QCOnline All-Stars Honorable Mention, and became our high school team captain. This whole experience has shown my dedication and commitment to soccer.
Going forward I am looking for a college that fits my academic and athletic style. I know from my past that I have what it takes to achieve academically and compete athletically at a higher level. Although I have faced some challenges thus far, I am ready to challenge myself even more in the future.
