To experience collegiate athletics, play against the best of the best across the country, and challenge myself to be better game after game and season after season. To write my own story of success, in part by being recruited, earning a scholarship, making a name for myself on the field, and achieving my academic and other personal goals.
Our coach picked up two new and young players who met great difficulty adjusting to our teams speed and style of play, the coaching style, and level of intensity at practice and during games. Rather than focus on myself, I gained their trust by going out of my way to establish a relationship, mentor and support them, help them understand and execute drills. I spent time with them on and off the field, answered questions, helped them understand their role and coaches expectations when they're on the field. I helped them determine what skill sets to focus on, how to navigate adversity, and achieve their goals while fulfilling their roles on the field. Both players built confidence, and you could see improvement in their performance on the field. They even established relationships with other players on the team.
I challenge my body regularly with resistance training, plyometrics, stretching often, and being relentless with my rest and recovery. I also have multiple soccer specific trainers that work with me on various skills, improving my soccer IQ and technical knowledge. It's my belief that practice should be harder than the game, and with this in mind, I compete in practice like I'm playing in a game. My team is a very competitive high performing team with lots of talent, because of this I practice as if the roster is changing daily, so I fight for my spot every practice and it shows on the field on game day.
