I am a player you probably wouldn’t have come across at a club showcase or tournament; I have only played one year of club soccer. But I think I have what it takes to play at the next level.
I’ve grown up in the South Texas border area—the Rio Grande Valley—and started playing city soccer when I was five-years-old. I attended a small Catholic school through eighth grade—I was the only girl on the soccer team that year.
In high school, I’ve been a four-year, two-sport varsity athlete splitting my time between soccer and track, which is difficult because in Texas these high school seasons overlap. I’ve learned a lot about dedication and time management and this past season earned top honors in both sports. Including all area, all district and all city in soccer. In varsity track I qualified for the area finals in three events and the regional finals in the 4x100m relay last season. I’ve earned five appearances in the Summer Games of Texas and helped my high school team to their first-ever district championship as a freshman. In 2017 I was named TAAF Female Athlete of the year for the City of Edinburg. I currently hold five school records in track including the 100m dash (12.7)
I had a great 2018/19 season and finished strong earning All City 1stTeam and All District First Team and All Area honors for my high school team. We were so close to winning district – a tied game we lost in PK kept us in second place. But we finished with the fewest goals given up all season (6) and the most goals scored (46).
My primary position is outside back. I love playing defense and as you can see in my highlight video, I’m not afraid to head the ball. I scored four goals last season, two on headers. I believe my speed, strength and versatility on the pitch are my best assets; I run a 12.7 100m.
