“I recently made my verbal commitment to Cal State Fullerton. I was first approached by Head Coach Demian Brown at the Thanksgiving Surf Tournament. He asked if I had ever thought about playing D1 and I found myself a little stumped by this question. I had not; maybe I doubted my ability or maybe I had thought of the chance of playing D1 as unrealistic. But it was Coach Brown who saw my potential and opened my eyes to a whole new world of opportunities. I visited the campus and knew it was the place for me! I’m looking forward to working hard and growing as a person and a player at Fullerton.
I want to thank my parents for all their sacrifice in helping me play soccer throughout my life, leading to this wonderful opportunity. And to my brother who taught me so much about work ethic and persistence. I knew when we moved from the Bay Area in my freshman year that I wanted to play for Placer United. I want say thank you to my current Placer coach Gene and to Ron for helping prepare me for this next step. And for my teammates – I will never forget you and will smile when I think of all the memories we have made!”
