Going as a team to a several competitive tournaments with high pressure on us to advance was very difficult. I learned that I cannot let the pressure get to me and no matter what I have to be leader on the field. As a center back, I am constantly talking, never to break someone down, but to help further the team as a whole.
I have been on FCDallas for going on 6 years and I have played soccer since I was four. My experiences are probably all the same as every other athlete, but the lessons I have learned are my own, and I bring something new to the table. I have fully committed myself to soccer and academics over the years and I have learned about character, work ethic, attitude, the importance of preparation, and leadership skills throughout my years of playing. Ultimately my motivation is my love for the game.
