Hi Coach Marino!

I am just starting to look at colleges and would love to play for UCLA after highschool. I have watched the UCLA Women's team play and love the style of play. I think that my 8 years of training has developed my skills towards a similar style.

If you get a chance to come watch some of my games I would love for you to see my strong defensive mindset as well as my frequent head balls and slide tackles!

Hi Coach Marino,

My name is Brenda Seymour and I am very interested in going to and playing soccer for Cal Lutheran next year. Cal Lutheran looks like a great school, and I am especially interested in the Exercise Science/Sports Medicine programs. From what I have seen in the standings this season, I can tell that Cal Lutheran has a great soccer program, which I would very much like to be a part of.

About me: I have a 4.0 GPA at Roosevelt High School in Seattle, and scored a 2040 on the SAT. This year I will win my 4-year Varsity Letter awards for both soccer and track. Last year I played for Emerald City FC '91 Green, coached by Jan Smisek, and now I play for Metropolitan FC United '91, coached by Andy and Arne Klubberud.

I will be playing in the Thanksgiving Starfire FieldTurf Cup in Tukwila, WA. Will you be there? If so, it would be great if you could come watch me play.

Attached is my player profile.

Thanks!
