I've always been the player and person who uses heartbreaks and let downs to fuel them to get better. I've never been the best or the favorite but I believe that that is what makes me good. I've recently lost a coach who has made a huge impact on me and my decisions to continue playing after highschool. Coach Greg Cole coached me my very first season of soccer that ive ever played in AYSO. After a couple years of either playing against his teams or not around him at all I decided to move on up to club and fair enough he was my coach once again. He then coached me from the ages of 12- 15. Even when he wasnt coaching my games he was still reffing them. he was our main highschool ref. Unfortunatkey things happen. Coach cole passed away in May of 2019. it was my sophmore year I had just lost my favorite coach and I didnt make varsity. I was a mandatory JV player. I thought about quitting so many times after that. I was struggling but then an assistant coach of his reminded me of why I play the game. I then continued to play and made varsity my junior year. I still didn't start but I played and I countined to work hard. I had earn a varsity letter award and scored 4 varsity goals my junior year. I still play because of him. I'll never forget him giving me tips on the sidelines after a game that he reffed.
I now play for Hagerstown Freedom in Hagerstown, Maryland. This is my first season with them and quite frankly most of it is being taken from me beacause of the virus. Hopefully we can get back on the feild for our furture tournaments. as of right now I'm still continue to train and striving to be the best student and player that I can be.
