Playing for Team USA is the greatest honor that has come my way. Even though I have played in both World Cup’s, each one is more challenging and I strive to beat every challenge that comes my way. Representing my country is the greatest feeling in the world.

Making the 2015 World Cup Team USA is the fulfillment of my dream since the first World Cup in 2007. I am excited to become one of the elite Power Soccer players in the nation and share the honor with my teammates of representing our nation at the highest level of play. It also give me ideals, values, and skills that I could take back to my community to help grow the sport in years to come.

After making Team USA in 2011, it means all of my hard work over the last four years has paid off. Not many athletes get to play their sport at the highest level of competition so I am honored and motivated to represent my country again.

Playing for Team USA has always been a dream of mine. From my very first game I knew that I wanted to compete at the highest level, and Team USA sets the bar. I am ready to help the team in any way that I can to help the United States win its third straight World Cup.

The ability to represent my family, friends, city, and country is an honor that very few have been blessed with. It means all the hard work and time I have put in to better myself, CNY United, and power soccer in general will have paid off more than I could have ever imagined since I first put a guard on and rolled onto the court in 2003.

Playing for Team USA means the world to me. Ever since I realized that I was going to tryout, I practice every day at my school and I had team practice 2 times a week. It also means I get to represent my country at the highest level and play with the worlds best players.

It means so much to play for our country and to wear the red, white and blue. This is the highest level of competition for our sport and I am happy to be a part of something bigger than myself. I also want to make history and to be a part of a team that wins three straight World Cups.
