My main goal in playing college soccer is to further my career in the sport I love the most. Soccer has ALWAYS been my top priority and my favorite thing to do. It is my one love and passion. I started playing when I was three and haven’t skipped a single season since. I have always been seen as one of the best, if not the best, players on the team. I started playing coed as every young child does, and became a pretty aggressive player, which is one of my biggest strengths. Unlike other girls I play in a male league because I’ve always felt as if they were more up to pace with what I want to play, and this fast paced level is the perfect preparation for college. I did however play for one of the highest select teams in Kentucky, the Kentucky Fire Juniors. I tried out when I was 10 and got asked to play up an age group on the elite team because I was better than others in my age group. My time with KFJ was not long though, because when I turned 12 I realized that I enjoyed playing with boys more.
High school has brought me back into the swing of playing with an all female team and I actually love it more than I thought I would. High school has also brought out my strong academic side as well. Since the beginning of freshman year I have held a 4.0 gpa and I am a part of the Mercy Scholars program (a program designed for the top 8 academically enclined students of every grade). I also partake in extra classes and I’m placed in the highest possible class levels. I strive to be my best in school and in soccer and I’m always prepared for a challenge, which is what I believe college soccer will bring. I live by a motto that a coach once told me which states “good is the enemy of great”. This motto exemplifies the meaning of who I am and how I will not stop at good. Because good isn’t good enough. I must strive for greatness.
