Valerie Meyer

I am so incredibly excited to announce my commitment to Saint Mary's College of California!  I am so blessed to be going to Saint Mary's, and this opportunity as well as all of the experiences yet to come would not be possible without the love and support I have received along the way. First of all. thank you to Coach Travis and Coach Tina for giving me the chance to come to a beautiful school and be a part of a high-level program full of girls who share my passion. Thank you so much to my parents, who sacrificed countless hours to make the long drive to practice all the way in Sacramento as I pursued my dream of becoming a D1 college athlete. A special thank you to my mom, my best friend, for always reminding me through my failures and successes of her love and support for me. My dad deserves a dual thank you, as he was my first soccer coach and continued to coach me until freshman year when he passed me on to Tony Perez, my first ECNL coach. Tony was my coach for a year until I tore my ACL, he was the coach that gave me my first big shot. Coach Tony impacted me as both a soccer player and a person in more ways than you can imagine. Without his constructive criticism, patience, and faith in my abilities, I don't believe I would be where I am today. Also, thank you to Coach Erin for helping me along the way from the beginning of my recruiting process, and helping me to learn how to communicate with coaches in a mature and responsible way. I cannot wait to be off to college, doing what I love, and making memories that will last a lifetime. All of these people have made it possible, and I couldn't be more grateful!
