Alex says the most influential person in her life is her freshman year soccer coach. “Whether he knows it or not, he pushed me to become a great player, and a hard-working person. Obviously my parents, and friends have impacted my life through their support, but this coach was different. He saw the potential in me, and pushed me to find it,” said Alex. “I know that I may never be the best player, but that I can easily have the best attitude and work ethic, and those traits will be with me throughout my entire life.
