I have loved soccer for almost ten years now. As I've progressed into more competitive soccer I've realized my need for more technical training. The past two years I proactively tried out for and made the Iowa Olympic Development Team for last season and this season. I am extremely excited about this opportunity to play soccer with high caliber players and work with and learn from college/professional coaches to improve my skills. I have a "next save is mine" attitude when it comes to goals getting past me. I work well with my teammates and want defensive players in front of me to work as a unit, communicating well and covering each other. I work hard in the classroom and I enjoy learning new things. As far as what makes me different I feel like I am a very coachable player. I'm learning new things all the time and I LOVE to apply those lessons on the field. I've learned the value of recording my training sessions and games to be able to see what I'm doing. I have a YouTube channel that I have uploaded game videos and training sessions. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLa_ri9jSsF0beO_7HNV9bAAJOQUOl6QUk I'm continually learning in the context of camps, training sessions, indoor games, outdoor games, college combines and just generally talking to and watching other goalkeepers. I sometimes feel like a sponge soaking up everything that I can learn about goalkeeping and soccer in general! Lastly, one of the main things I'm looking forward to in the college soccer environment is having a "soccer family" of trusted companions that I love to work with, learn with and God-willing, win with!
