I'm super excited to announce that I have verbally committed to California State University Long Beach. I have dreamt of playing D1 soccer in college since I was little and now my dreams are coming true. I knew I liked Long Beach the first time I spoke to Joey Sudyka, but I loved LB even more after I saw their style of play, the campus and of course the beach. It fits me perfectly.
Thank you to all my coaches from San Juan, everybody played a big role in this journey and still does. John Love, Craig Huft, Curtis Holmes, Iain Frasier and of course Erin Sharpe. Thank you, Curtis and Erin, for totally "getting me". telling me to relax and breathe and to have fun when I'm too hard on myself. You have always made practices fun and I always look forward to them. A huge thank you to Erin for guiding me through this recruiting process and truly believing in me. I know a good coach can make or break a good player and I've had some of the best that always encouraged me and still do.
I want to thank my entire family for being there with me through thick and thin throughout this process and always believing in me even when I didn't always believe in myself. Thank you, dad, for motivating me to get better and of course always wanting to play soccer in the backyard.
