How many years have you been playing soccer?: 10
How many years have you been playing goalie?:6
Some things you like: The adrenaline rush. Making a great save. watching your goalie punt fly. Penalities! Everything about it. Goalie shopping :) watching Buffon play(my fav keeper in the world, but Brazil's my team) Going to goalie camps. Winning..or losing a good game. My team. being the last man back, on a breakaway, it all comes down to you. SHUTOUTS! theres not much to not love about soccer, and playing goalie. Its the toughest position on the field by far ( i've played every other position too) most def. the most challenging, but it's so rewarding.
Some things you dislike: Strong wind. that sound when the ball swooshes by you and drops in the net. Not playing well as a team. But..i learn from those moments..so theres not much to dislike.oh..when the net sucks..like its not tied back properly and it just flops behind..that always bugs me.
Anything else you'd like to say?: I love soccer. its the best sport in the world..I love watching it, playing it, soccer icons, everything. I watch english premier and Italian series, i coach the younger teams at my high school, play premier competitive, a mens pickup league lol, and another pickup game every sunday with some of my brazillian friends. Soccers not just a sport, its a lifestyle. Ive never seen a community only for soccer goalies...this is awesome.
