”I am extremely honored to announce that I have committed to play for William Jessup University. It has been a dream of mine to play for WJU since 5th grade and to now be able to call WJU my home is still surreal. I would not be where I am if it were not for my family, trainers, and coaches who pushed me farther than I believed I was capable. I would like to thank my Mom and Dad for going above and beyond to ensure that my dreams came true. They have given me their time and love and for that I will always be grateful. I also have to thank three trainers that have not only pushed me out for my comfort zones, but also infused belief into me that with hard work and dedication, I could achieve my dreams. These trainers are Jenny Wood, Chris Star and Matt Bernard. Next, I absolutely want to thank coaches Todd Decarlo and Ron Benjamin for giving me the opportunity to play for Placer. My time with the Club has been short, but in this short time I have learned and grown so much which enabled me to see this dream come true. Last, and certainly not least, I would like to thank Coach Jamie Howard of WJU Women’s Soccer Team for giving me the chance to join her team and grow along with them.
I am so excited for all that is ahead. I look forward to giving 150% while continuing to play, develop and train this season with Placer as I prepare for the transition to WJU Women’s Soccer.” — Emily Lemos
