“I am beyond excited to announce that I have verbally committed to attend and play soccer at Brown University in 2016. I don’t think I could have found a more perfect fit for me and I cannot wait to play for Coach Laughlin and receive an Ivy League education. Go Bears!
I would like to thank everybody who helped me get to where I am today. I could not have done it without the support from the Club and Placer staff members. First of all, I want to say thank you to Matt Scammacca and Kelcey Chaidez for helping me grow as a player in my youth years. Another thank you goes to Robbie Handie for helping me further develop my skills this past year.
I am incredibly grateful to Jason Gantt for allowing me to be part of the Placer ’97 team at Dallas Cup this past spring, where I was seen by Brown University. I would also like to say thanks to the guidance of Francois Barbe this past year. I’d like to thank my teammates who constantly push me to get better as a player and for being some of my best friends on and off the field.
I want to especially thank Paul O’Brien for making me the player I am today and helping me turn this dream into a reality. I could not have done it without him.
Most of all, I would not be the person I am today without the love and support from my parents, who backed up my every decision the entire way. I am very much looking forward to my final year representing the yellow submarine and being part of the Placer family.” —Zac Anderson
