"I started training with Don when as a 6th grader and he helped me respect and love the position of goalkeeper. He taught me that you have to work twice as hard as field players to be good at goalkeeping. Some of my favorite memories of goalkeeping are making huge saves in practice or in games knowing for a fact, I could not have made those saves without countless triangle drills. Before Coach Don, I was taught goalkeeping is purely based off whether you have good hands or not. In reality, Coach Don taught me that “If your feet can't get you to the ball, then your hands don't matter.” In my years with Coach Don, I learned more about soccer than I imagined, plus how to be a leader on the field. I'm extremely thankful for Coach Don challenging me, having confidence in me, being honest in my abilities and for helping me get so far in my soccer career."
