-Top scoring defender of Marist 2021 Season with 8 goals.
Since I was young, like 4 years old young, I wanted to play professional soccer. I used to watch my dad play soccer with some of his friends his age, and I was mesmerized. I wanted to be able to soccer goals, get stuck into tackles, outrun players, win headers, and be one of the best soccer players in the world. Unfortunately, it has always been hard for me to live and grow as a soccer player and reach high levels of leagues in my state. My family has not always been the richest so they had put me into the leagues where soccer was more for fun like recreational. However, I knew and I think coaches knew I was not made for the rec leagues. So my family made many sacrifices for me to play in better leagues as I grew up, and play for a very strong high school soccer team that also is high in academics status amongst the other high school in my state. So, I would like to return my parent's efforts with me going to college and getting scholarship money to help improve my game in soccer as well as academically with little to no financial help from them. Playing soccer in colleges with an academic or athletic scholarship will not only help my parents, but I know that the high and intense level of play in collegiate soccer will ultimately help me grow as a soccer player and may lead to me playing overseas as a professional.
On the field, I use my loud and uplifting voice to command for simple actions like passing, telling players they have a man off, switching the field, and other important soccer terms in order to help my teammates and improve both their game and my game. Off the field, I was the president of the Young Men's Sercive League in my class of 2022 in the Centennial Chapter. This includes me working with other moms in my chapter and being accountable for the activities and responsibilities of other young men in my chapter.
As a student-athlete, I believe that in order to have a "healthy athletic performance" you have to be healthy both on and off the field. This means that in order to perform at my highest peak in a soccer match, I also have to perform at my highest peak in school. My dad has always stressed to me how, "how you do anything, is how you do everything." So, if I want to be a professional soccer player, I also have to be a professional scholar. In order to main that "healthy athletic performance" I have to eat healthily, train hard, study and work hard, and finally play hard.
I am currently a member of the Young Men's Sercive Leauge which is an organization in Georgia where a group of young me and their mothers participate in various activities in the community to help those who are in need whether it be financially, physically, or mentally. My goal by joining this cooperation was and is to help as many people in my area as I can because I believe that it is important that those who are struggling have a helping hand.
