1) What is your favorite meal (main course and dessert!)?

Bow-tie pasta and cheesecake

 

2) What is your favorite moment of your college career so far?

My freshman year, University of Puget Sound had won conference for 9 years in a row. We beat them by scoring in the last 15 seconds after a 1-1 tie for almost the full ninety minutes.  That was probably the most exciting moment of my college soccer career so far!

 

3) How are you doing in you college classes?

I am doing very well in my classes.  I am an exercise science major and I am on the student executive board.  Classes are very difficult and time consuming, especially when they have a 3 hour lab once a week on top of regular class time.  I love going to a small school because I know all of my professors and most of the students in my major and I always have someone to go to for help when I need it. 

 

4) What is the biggest game on your schedule?

Our biggest game was supposed to be against University of Puget Sound because they have won conference for 11 years in a row, however this year they are almost last.  Our game against Linfield College will probably be our biggest game this season. 

 

5) Do you have any suggestions for the current San Diego United players?

Coaches are looking for good players of course, but more importantly they want to see consistency. Focus on making good decisions on the field and being consistent with your style of play.  Watch as much soccer as you can and be confident when talking to coaches.  They are looking for smart players who will make good leaders in the future.  Don't be afraid to talk to them and ask questions!  If they feel that you are genuinely interested in their school and the team, they will be more likely to recruit you as a player.
