I began playing soccer when I was 4 years old, and I have loved the game since I first stepped on the field. From there, I played club soccer, starting when I was 8 years old. It has been my dream since then to play soccer at the collegiate level, and I understand the dedication and hours of hard work it takes to play at that level. I plan to keep putting in the great amount of effort it takes to achieve my goal of playing college soccer.
I am fast and quick with my feet on the field. I can read the field well, which makes me able to pass very well to my teammates. I led my high school team in goals both my freshman (26) and sophomore (42) years, contributed 14 assists my freshman year and 24 my sophomore year, and made second-team all-area my freshman year and 1st team all area my sophomore year. I was also named captain of my high school team my sophomore year. I am a team leader, a hard worker, and I am very vocal on the field. I try to pick my teammates up when they are down and think about the whole team winning, not just myself. I am a very coachable player and I look for constructive criticism to better myself as a player.
Along with being a strong soccer player, I am a strong student as well. I had an average of about a 98.5 GPA last year and I am in the highest level of classes for my grade. I am currently in 3 AP classes, and I plan to take many more in the future. I like to stay active in the community, so during the summer, I work at my brothers’ baseball field, and I plan to start refereeing soccer games. I am also a member of 2 clubs at my school and I plan to join many more in future years.
I am open to all options for college because I would like to find the perfect fit that challenges me both academically and athletically. Along with that, my goal is to play at the highest level possible while still playing all four years. My desire is to be a successful student-athlete and fulfill my childhood dreams of playing college soccer.
