How did your FC Copa coaches help you become the player you are today?
Coach Matty welcomed me to his team when I joined for my senior year. He has been supportive and encouraging while I navigate my last year of high school, the club season, and college recruiting. Coach Mary was always a support to me whenever I needed advice or had questions.
Share any advice you would have for future FC Copa Academy athletes going through the collegiate recruitment process:
My advice for athletes going through the recruitment process is to be involved and be open-minded to the process. Don’t get discouraged and reach out to colleges on behalf of yourself.
