Jenna Stiehr - 2016 Commit

Jenna Stiehr - 2016 (Spirits '98 ECNL)

Jordan Holt

I am proud to announce that I will be continuing my education and playing soccer at Oregon Institute of Technology starting in the Fall of 2016. I am excited to be getting the opportunity to attend one of the top ranked schools in academics and to be part of their up and coming Women’s Soccer program. My goal has always been to pursue my dream in getting my education in Pre-Med and becoming an Orthopedic Surgeon. Playing soccer has helped me pursue that dream, and has now given me the opportunity to continue my passion for soccer at the collegiate level. Growing up in the country and living in a small town, I felt right at home with Oregon Tech’s rural campus, being nestled in the hills and overlooking Klamath Lake. Thanks to Coach Brandon Porter taking over, their soccer program has made leaps and bounds this past year. I am looking forward to being part of his progress and cannot wait to see what the 2016 season brings. I would like to thank Coach Brandon for recognizing me and giving me this opportunity. I would also like to thank my San Juan Goalkeeper Trainer and family friend Sanaldo. When I played soccer and first became a goalkeeper, I began training with Sanaldo. His trainings gave me my technical base and foundation as a goalkeeper. He pushed me to be the best goalkeeper I could be. Without him, I would never become as good of a goalkeeper nor become Jenaldo #25. I am glad to have the chance to finish my competitive career with Sanaldo, to go full circle and finish with whom I had started. I would also like to thank Coaches Tony Perez, Erin Sharpe and Derek Evans for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to play ECNL and NPL with San Juan. I would also like to express my gratitude for my teammates for being supportive and for pushing me to develop my skills. Most importantly, I would like to thank my family for all their dedication and encouragement through the years. Thank you mom and dad for driving me to all the games, all the special trainings I received and the motivation while growing up. It was the support you gave me on the field as an athlete, but even more importantly off the field as a daughter, that made me the person that I am. Without that, I would not be as successful as I have become. Although it has been a short time here for me at San Juan Soccer Club, I am honored to represent San Juan Spirits at Oregon Tech with Pride!
