Thank You, Next

It’s difficult to close a chapter in life. Especially when you lived and breathed that chapter since you were 5 years old. That chapter for me is soccer. Yes, it’s true. I have decided to step away from playing collegiate soccer. Being a college athlete is a job that takes commitment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days out of the year. It’s very difficult to fully understand that concept until you’ve actually experienced it for yourself. In order to compete at your highest level you have to be constantly managing your training, sleep, diet, fitness, recovery […]

I Committed to College

The time has finally come. I did it. After almost four years of lots of hardwork. After visiting twenty-seven different college campuses, writing over one hundred and thirty five emails, and attending nine different ID camps, I have finally decided where I am going to further both my education and athletic career and where I am going to call home for the next four years of my life.

I’m backkkkkk!!! Sorry for the long break but I had some technical issues that took a while to solve, but we’re back up and running! … In mid November I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Phoenix for the second time with my soccer team to play in the ECNL Showcase. Now, I have to say, the Reach 11 Sports Complex has THE prettiest fields I’ve ever played at. The grass is amazing and the mountains in the background make the scene picture perfect. It looks like it came out of a picture book! I remember a year ago on this same […]

The Best of Seattle

Hello and Happy Summer!! On June 20th I had the amazing opportunity to fly to Seattle, Washington with my soccer team to play the sport that I love. This was our 3rd trip flying as a team so we pretty much had the logistics down pat. The dedicated coaching staff and chaperones make it a priority that that the trip ran very smoothly and I couldn’t be more thankful for each and everyone of them. When flying into Seattle I had 3 initial thoughts. 1. There are SO many trees. 2. EVERYTHING is green. 3. It’s NOT raining!!! All of these […]

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

2017. What a wild and unforgettable year that I am forever thankful for. Just to recap on the highlights: I traveled to Europe for the first time, visiting London and Barcelona, and opened my eyes to some of the wonders that the other side of the world holds. I moved out of the house I had lived in for all 15 years of my life and into another which has proven to be more than perfect for our family. With that, I took full advantage of the opportunity to decorate my new room and turn it into my personal haven. (room […]
