Coxsackie-Athens

Q: How did you fall in love with your sport?

A: I fell in love with soccer playing for our rec team Henry Hudson. I played baseball before that, but I found soccer to be much more exciting and engaging.

Q: What’s your favorite moment as an athlete in that sport?

A: My favorite moment in soccer is the exhilaration of scoring a goal against a really good team, putting the ball in just the right corner. My favorite personal moment was scoring the OT goal at home against Cairo-Durham last season.

Q: What is your favorite sports moment as a fan?

A: My favorite sports moment as a fan was when France won the World Cup.

Q: What athlete do you look up to the most and why?

A: I don’t really have a favorite athlete. I think everyone has different skills that come together to make good teams. I learn what I find helpful from all of them.

Q: Best advice you’ve received from a coach, mentor or teammate in your sport?

A: Best advice I have received from my former coach is “let the ball do the work.” Keep possession of the ball, and don’t over dribble. This is something I would like to perfect, but am still working on it.
