Hi coaches- my name is Kadin Davoren, and i’m very interested in playing competitive soccer in college. Ever since being asked to play on a '03' club team as an '05' at the age of seven, I have dedicated a huge portion of my life to taking soccer seriously. Growing up, my (club) teammates and competitors have consistently been older than me, which has helped me to mature both athletically and socially. Overtime, I have also discovered my positional flexibility– throughout middle school I was the top scoring player on my team as a midfielder, but I transitioned to my current center back position after my coaches and I realized my potential as a defender. In my first high school season (2020) I was the only freshman to make Varsity. This 2021 season I became far more impactful, starting all 18 games, including all playoff games. I was rarely subbed, playing almost 90 minutes every game. My significance on the field in 2021 can also be merited by these statistics: I was one of 19 Sophomores in Maine selected as a Regional-All Star– and out of every player selected, I was 1 of 3 who played Defense. Playing both left and right CB, I am known for my strength, fight, and trustworthiness when it comes to getting the ball. I’m not afraid to use my body in a tackle, or step in front to intercept passes and shots. In addition to my defensive mindset, I also have exceptional vision of the field; where the ball is going to be, and where it should go next. To help express my field IQ to others, I’ve taken responsibility of being constantly verbal throughout games. I’ve been named as the biggest communicator on both my travel and high school team, with coaches and players looking to me to give constructive criticism and direction. Most importantly, my leadership is extremely noticed (not only athletically, but also academically/socially), as I am someone who strives to make a connection with everyone. Above all, I love belonging to a team, and giving my absolute all to this sport.
