Justin's Story

My passion is Soccer, and Science.

I discovered my passion for Soccer in 5th grade. When choosing my after school program, I stumbled across Soccer. I have never actually played a team or school so I said ,"What the heck I'll join the soccer team and that started my career as a soccer player". Though it didn't take a major lift off until 7th grade in which I started playing in soccer games, and got a little good with ball. My passion for Science started in 7th grade where we learned about cells and how they divide. After that I saw the movie contagion where a virus nearly destroys the world. After those two instances I loved science (bacteria, virus, and medicine) ever since.

My biggest obstacle that involves my passion for soccer is coming to play soccer for the first time. When I first played soccer I didn't no how pass a ball correctly, shoot the ball or dribble the ball correctly. So I had to teach myself and master these things. Attending the Red Bull Stadium Residential Soccer Camp will explore my passion because one of my dreams is to become a professional soccer player, playing for the Seattle Sounders FC, or the New York Red Bulls. I believe that going to this soccer camp will improve my skills and make me an excellent candidate for either of the teams I would love to play for. They will set me up for success and I will be achieving one the hundreds of dreams that I have and I will have to thank the Red Bull soccer camp for that.

A Note from Mr. Mitchell, Justin's Coach

Justin has put in a lot of effort to become a better soccer player. He is passionate about soccer and improving all of his skills to become a successful player on the soccer field. Despite having limited resources, Justin has become a much better soccer player and understands how to be a great teammate.

Justin is a good candidate for the NY Red Bull soccer camp because he needs technical training to improve his skills. He is very respectful and will listen closely to become a better soccer player with each training session.
