I am extremely excited to announce my commitment to play soccer at CSU Chico next year.  The many hours of hard work and determination have finally paid off and allowed me to accomplish my dream of playing at the collegiate level.  I can’t wait to be part of the Chico family and make many amazing, new memories. 

I would like to thank all of my coaches from my last 12 years for helping shape me into the player I am today.  I cannot thank San Juan coaches Bernardo Silva and Erin Sharpe enough for helping me reach my goal.  I came to San Juan this year, and they have cared about me and my future since the very beginning.  I am beyond thankful that I was able to spend my last year of club soccer here.  San Juan has been the best environment for me to prepare for the next level.  We are constantly pushed at training to be our best, and the passionate environment is truly amazing.  I would also like to thank Sh-Mike Callahan, Greg Thompson and Ron Sanchez from Blues, for inspiring me and allowing me to be the player I am today.  I made so many wonderful memories throughout my years there that I wouldn’t trade for the world.  Lastly, I would like to thank one of my high school coaches, Todd DeCarlo, for helping me through the recruiting process and always believing in me.

I would like to give my biggest thanks to my mom, dad and sister.  My parents have supported me through everything and have made all of my dreams possible.  I am thankful for their dedication to me and soccer over the past years.  They are my biggest fans and always cheer me on no matter what.  My sister has played soccer with me every year, until this year.  I want to thank her for being my best friend, while also constantly competing with me.  My family has made me the person I am today and I am so grateful for them. 

I am beyond excited to become a Wildcat next year. I love the environment of Chico, the family feel of the team and the amazing coaches there.  Thank you, Coach Kim Sutton, for watching me over the years and for believing in me to help contribute to Chico’s success.  I can’t wait! Go Wildcats!
