1. What did it mean to you to reach the 100 goals mark?
It definitely demonstrated all the hard work Iíve put into these past 3
seasons. It was a great feeling when the girls all hugged me and
congratulated me. Making the 100 was a great milestone but now I'm looking
to tuck away some more. Iím proud to have set the schools record.
2. When and why did you start playing soccer?
I started playing soccer when I was 4 years old. I always went to my
sisters' soccer practices and games. Then one day, at home, I grabbed the
ball she always had outside and dribbled it around the tree in our yard. Mom
saw me and thought it was a good idea to sign me up for soccer. Iíve loved
it ever since!
3. Who has been the most influential person in your soccer career?
I'd have to say that my coach from U-7 to U-13, Jerry Copeland, was the most
influential person in my career. He was a great coach and taught me a lot

Gee my favorite player?! Umm I'd have to say three way tie between Cristiano
Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Fernando Torres. They're all great players!

I look up to my sisters. They are ambitious and work hard to help people. I
hope to be as successful as they are.

I like to spend time with my friends. Whether it be catching movies, going
to the beach, or shopping at the mall, I like to hang out with them.

11. College Commitment and why you chose this college
I've verbally committed to play at Stetson University. I really like the
coaches and the players there. Academically its a great University. Its
close to home so my mom can make all the games. Also Iím used to small,
quiet communities so I think itíll be a great fit.
