I used to play for Syracuse Fusion for about 2 years and then it merged with Syracuse Development Academy and I played SDA for about a year and a half and then I switched to Soccer Central where I currently play and have only been on the team for about 9 months.
Playing soccer in college has been my goal since as long as I can remember. I have worked extremely hard to get where I am today, and I still have so much more work to be done. If a coach can recognize my work ethic and my ability to be coached, I would be extremely honored.
Being a center back for a team, you have to be a vocal person, which I think I am. I can see pretty much the entire field because I am on the backline so I am able to let my teammates know when they have a player to mark or I may tell them if they are in the wrong position. Outside of soccer, I have school in which I have straight A’s and that is only possible because I work hard and advocate for myself.
I am the type of person to know what I should and should not do when it comes to my health outside the game. I eat healthy everyday because it tastes good and is good for me.
I coach three year olds on Saturday’s at Syracuse Indoor Sports Center and I absolutely love it because it reminds me of myself and how I started playing the game when I was three years old. Starting kids young in sports helps them develop the same love for the game as players like me who have played for most of their life.
