I am a very dedicated, versatile, player who loves soccer and am also a Kicker for my high school's Varsity Football team; as well as their first female player. I started playing soccer at age 6 and playing high level soccer at age 9 and have played for 3 different clubs. Two of those teams I had led in both assists and in goals for 9 seasons as an attacking mid, left/right winger, and target and was also the assist leader for my ECNL team for the 2018-19 season. I love life and the outdoors and always try to have an upbeat, positive attitude, and to encourage everyone both on and off the field. I’m never hesitant about a challenge, whether it is on the field with a header or slide tackle and off the field, like wake boarding and water skiing for the first time this past summer. I love to score on volleys and long goals from well outside the 18 and am very comfortable doing so. My coaches say that I seem to have an effortless knack for it. I want to continuously increase my level of play and enjoy challenging myself to by routinely training with current college and professional players at Aaron Byrd's Next Level Training this is in addition to my club and football practices. I like to set the bar high for myself and I've been happy with achievements both as a team and individually. For example, I loved being able to contribute to my high school varsity soccer team's success this year as we competed in the hands down, hardest D1 conference for our state - Michigan's KLAA West division. We went all the way through to the State Finals and placed 2nd, it was a great ride. I feel I have grown a lot on and off the field (as you can see through the interviews that I gave in the press section here). Also in High school, I was 1 of only 3 sophomores in the state to make either the All-State 2nd or 3rd teams (Michigan also has a 4th team which is honorable mention), 1st team All-Conference, 1st team All-Division, Prep Athlete of the Week in May 2019, and 2019's Post-season Outstanding Player with 7 goals and 2 assists in 7 playoff games. For the ODP program, I love the diversity, experiences, skills, and everything else that I've been blessed to have gained through my first time trying out for the program. I was on the 2003 ODP Regional 2 team and played internationally in Costa Rica this past February 2019 and in July, I again was invited and attended the Region 2 camp. I was named to the current 2002/2003 combined Regional Pool and am hopeful I make the Regional team again. For club soccer, I am entering my second full season with the Michigan Hawks '03 ECNL Black team. The Hawks Black teams are their 6-month teams that allow us to be able to play high school soccer in the Spring.
In college, I recently decided instead of a medical based degree, I want to major in Business (Finance, Management, Real Estate) and I haven't wavered for wanting to keep playing at the collegiate level and beyond. As time is starting to fly by, I’m eagerly looking forward to attending a great college; not just to further my education and get a degree, but to add to my lifetime experiences, becoming a proud alumni, having an unbelievable connection with a soccer team of what I truly believe will become my soccer sisterhood and that will be my family away from home as well as making lifelong friends through out the campus.
