When did you first begin playing this sport?

When I was three years old.

Do you want to continue this sport in college?

Possibly.

Who was a prominent coach in your sports career? Why?

My club coach, Bob Meals. He constantly pushes me to challenge myself and to be the best player I can be. He may not be the nicest person ever, but he knows what he’s talking about and he’s always looking out for my best interest.

What other activities/clubs are you involved in?

Indoor track, Club Soccer, VP of Student Council, Editor in Chief of the Rebellion, Best Buddies and Green Team.

How do you feel going into this season?

I feel confident. We have new players, a new coach and basically a brand new team with a lot of talent and hope. It might take some time to get to where we need to be, but once we do, I am confident we can do great things this year. 

What are some goals set for the team this coming season?/How do you plan to achieve these goals?

Our main goal right now is to make tournament. We plan to achieve this by working hard during practice and even harder during games. We have a lot of great people and players, so I’m confident we can achieve that and maybe even go far in the postseason.

Who are some big opponents/rivals? Why?

Wellesley and Milton because we are very evenly matched; Natick, we beat them last year, so they’ll be looking to beat us this year.

If we continue to work hard every day in practice and games, then we have a good chance of winning the Herget.

I feel confident going into the season since our new coach has created a fresh start by focusing on what is needed to win and building us up from the bottom.

What are some goals set for the team this coming season?/How do you plan to achieve these goals?

First off, a goal of mine is to do better than we did last year. Getting into tournament is our primary goal, then from there, working hard to get the farthest we can.
