For the longest time, soccer has been the most important thing to me. I have dedicated a lot of time to advance my play and to become the best player I can. This includes taking extra training opportunities, and often missing out on school functions for soccer.
Many coaches have told me that when I am on the field, I am always the hardest working, doing my best to be the best.
While playing for club, I was moved two years up, playing with 02 girls instead of 04 girls, which is where I should be playing. I also was put on Varsity my freshman year. While on Varsity, I made the change from my usual center back position to defensive midfield, where I proceeded to make more of an impact on the game.
Along with the high school soccer schedule, which had practices every day, after high school practices I also went to smaller training's and conditioning sessions with my club, and didn't take the weekends off.
I also took the opportunity to help coach younger kids and teach them how to play the beautiful game Saturday mornings.
All of that together, never once during freshman year did my GPA drop below a 3.0, with the lowest spot it was at being 3.38.
To be able to play at the collegiate level has always been my main goal. Playing in college is something that many people dream of doing, but also something that very few players actually do. Given the chance to play at this level, I will be one of the hardest working players on the field, will never give up, and will excel on and off the field. Both on the field, and in the classroom.
