Recruit Profile
Unselfish initiator, shifty dodger with excellent vision and IQ, top flight club soccer, competitor, outstanding work ethic, both hands, can play 2-way and take wings

I have been a multi-sport athlete my entire life. Club soccer had been my primary sport with lacrosse being secondary until high school. In high school, I gave up Club soccer to allow me to focus on school and club lacrosse while still playing Varsity soccer.

For lacrosse, as a Freshman on HS Varsity, I was the third leading midfield scorer averaging nearly 1 point/game on the California Southern Section Championship team. My Sophomore season was cut short due to COVID-19. In three games played, I was leading the team in points with 9 goals, 4 assists and 5 ground balls. Thanks to my soccer experience, speed and athleticism, I am very comfortable being a 2-way midfielder and can take wings.

For soccer, as a Freshman on HS Varsity, I started every game at center back and was named honorable mention all conference for the CA D5 Southern Section Runner up Team. For soccer, as a Sophomore, I started every game as forward and led the team in scoring with 22 goals and 6 assists in 20 games played. I earned first team all league.

Academically, I have a 3.6 GPA and am taking AP US History and Pre-Calculus.
