My name is Anna Huber and I am from Saint Louis, Missouri. I mostly play center back but I can play anywhere on the back line. Some of my strengths are that I am left-footed, I can read the field very well, and my size and height help me win balls in the air. I also play quickly out of the back and can take free kicks or corners. I play for the club Lou Fusz Athletic and am on the Tottleben 05 team. I was born in 2006 but I have played up a year for 05 for most of my career.
I started playing soccer when I was about three-years old for my Catholic Church in CYC. I then started playing club soccer in kindergarten and have played for a total of two different clubs in the last ten years. Playing soccer has always allowed me to relax and have fun. I want to play soccer in college because I deeply enjoy being out on the soccer field and away from everyday stresses. I became interested in playing soccer when I was very little because both of my parents played soccer into their thirties, and my dad even help coach me. Both of my parents have helped me get to where I am today in my soccer career, and encouraged me to fall in love with the sport. I have learned mental toughness and patience through all of the hard games I have played.
An obstacle that I have faced was an injury to my ankle. I had surgery, was on crutches for over two months and couldn't begin touching a soccer ball until four months after surgery. I worked hard through physical therapy and got my ankle stronger than before my injury. When I began practicing again, I had to work harder on my passes, shots, and defending just to get back to where I was prior to my surgery. It took about nine months to become fully healthy again. This took great determination and was a hard obstacle I had to face.
