This summer has been a memorable one! Playing with the Charlotte Eagles has been great! From a soccer standpoint, things have been good. I have been playing center back and a little bit of center mid. I got to captain the team the first bit of games this summer. However, the most unique thing I have experienced this summer is the camaraderie within our team. Everyone loves one another and is willing to put in their best efforts during every activity together. I love bringing all the guys from the team over to the lake at my house. We have a blast together!
The most important lesson that has been implemented from the Charlotte staff is that we are to be Christians first and soccer players second.
This is something I want to make sure is forever applied when I return to Lipscomb. We are constantly surrounded by soccer and often forget what our main purpose of playing is… As Christians and this is something that can never be forgotten; we are to represent Christ on and off the field. We have spent a lot of time in different communities in Charlotte, and it is important how we carry ourselves everywhere we go. I love my city and love this team. I am glad Sway, Cameron, and myself got to come down and play in Charlotte together!
