How long have you been with Celtic?
I’ve been with Celtic for about 3 years now.

What is your favorite thing about your team?
My favorite thing about my team is even though we have been through a lot of ups and downs we’ve been able to bounce back and do really good so far this year.

What position do you play?
I play as a central midfielder.

Do you have any favorite soccer memories?
My favorite soccer memory was when we played in the Disney Showcase I was able to go shopping, to the beach, and get to play soccer with my teammates.

When training stopped in the spring did you continue working on your soccer skills? What types of things were you doing on your own to keep improving?
During the spring even without training I was working a lot. My team did Techne Futbol and I was working with my 2 soccer goals and wall in my backyard. I mainly wanted to keep up my first touch and my shot.

What are your goals in soccer – would you like to play collegiately?
I really want to play soccer at the college level and I have always dreamed of playing on the national team or at the professional level.

Have you begun the college recruiting process? If so, how has that been going and have you received any support from your coaches or from the Celtic Director of College Placement (Doy Seabolt)? If so, what type of advice or help have they given you?
The colleges I am looking at right now are the University of Pittsburgh, New York University, and James Madison University, but I am still searching because I am on the younger side of my team. I haven’t really started the recruiting process, but my coach, Coach Michael Scott, has given us a bunch of help on our emails to college coaches. He wanted us to make sure we had all the information the college coaches will want to know in our emails.

What is the best piece of advice you have received from a coach?
The best advice I have ever gotten from a coach was to leave it all on the field and try your hardest all the time.
