What makes you different?
I am a distinguished public speaker and debater which means that I possess clear communication skills as well as the confidence in my self and my ability to communicate my ideas and opinions to a large group of people, especially in a sporting environment. Growing up in Australia, contact sports are taught from a young age which means that I am physically competent and posses little to no fear when entering challenges or contesting for a ball. I am a perfectionist and a player interested in athlete analytics so I often rewatch games in order to analyse areas of my performance that could improve. I watch and analyse many professional goalkeepers who posses a similar frame and style as myself in order to improve my game by determining what allows these individuals to be so effective. I am a very sociable person, comfortable in different environments.
Why do you want to compete in college?
Competition in college not only allows me to further my education while playing sport but also allows me to build connections with a wider range of people. As a student determined to go into sports management and business, who you know becomes very important, as such I want to surround myself with like minded people who share the same passions as me. As the United States is the sporting capital of the world, this venture allows me to create new opportunities, working with some of financial sports finest. The specified goalkeeper coaching offered within the college system would allow me to become the best version of myself both as a player and a person.
My goals for college are to compete at the highest level I can. Whilst determined to graduate and play professionally, I am also determine to continue my championship winning youth career as a college student, doing all I can to support myself, my teammates, and my coaching staff in order to successfully win titles.
