What did you enjoy most about attending the Academy? – The atmosphere and culture at the Academy make it so much fun to be a part of. BTP creates a competitive and encouraging environment that makes it so amazing.
How do you feel the Academy helped prepare you to play in college? – The Academy taught me how to come out of my shell as a keeper and compete with others in my position. The group work really helped me when it came to showcases and ID clinics during the recruiting process, and I don’t think I would have been as ready for college as I was without the Academy and the awesome coaches!
What would you say to keepers who were thinking of joining the Academy? – Definitely join! The Academy changes my life and I wouldn’t change my decision to join for the world. I have made great friends and have gotten farther in my soccer career then I ever could have hoped with the help of the Academy.
Do you want to keep playing or coaching after college, or both?
I have actually already had some great coaching experiences already with BTP, the Philadelphia Union Youth program, and 1 on 1 coaching. I would love the opportunity to continue coaching and if the opportunity presents itself, play as well.
