I emigrate from Ireland to Fort Lauderdale with my parents to Florida in 2011 at the age of 6 and have always been active in various sports.
I have played Softball and Flag Football, but my love has always been in Soccer. My first exposure to soccer was playing recreational Soccer where I quickly learned that this was my favorite sport. From Rec., I played with Plantation Eagles in Fort Lauderdale Florida and quickly made the first team from where I have played and won many tournaments.
In May 2015 my family and I moved to Columbus Ohio where I joined Classics Eagles and made the travel team that fall. Classics Eagles later amalgamated with Barca Academy Columbus where I was playing as midfield on their academy 1st team up until summer 2020. In order to have more exposure to higher level games I have moved to Ohio Premier Soccer Club where I will be playing on there ECNL RL team.
I am a current Sophomore at Olentangy Berlin High School and this is my second season on the Varsity Soccer team. I start each game where I play attacking midfield however, can reposition to defensive midfield when required.
Team chemistry is very important to me where I like to connect with all my teammates. I’m a very competitive person even at a young age and I will continue to develop my skills to become better and stronger throughout my career and pass that positive influence to my teammates.
I love training, playing different positions and learning new skills which make me both a better player and a leader on the pitch. I have played #2, #6, #7 and #10, however, my preferred position is attacking midfield. I lead by example as a player on the Varsity team and encourage my teammates to train hard as a team where we can learn from our mistakes so as to be better athletes. I love high school and continue to work hard to ensure my grades are maintained at a high level so I can reach my aspiration of playing collegiate soccer and becoming a lawyer when I complete my studies.
