“As a local kid from the valley I grew up playing CJSL then transitioned to competitive soccer playing my entire career with California Odyssey soccer club. I was fortunate enough to have great coaches to teach me through the development stages of my career. I went on to try out for Olympic Development Teams (ODP) where I climbed the ranks starting at the State level, Regional team, and by the end of the year found myself fortunate enough to make the Youth National Team. My high school career began at Buchanan High School lettering all four years, winning several TRAC championships and one valley championship. Along the way I was able to tally up numerous all Valley Selections Awards as well as All Valley Player of the Year in my final season. After graduating from Buchanan High school I received a substantial division 1 scholarship opportunity at UC Riverside where I finished out my freshman year receiving UCR “Freshman of the Year” award. I departed UCR that summer and was blessed with an opportunity at a division 2 school, Cal State University of Chico, where I finished off my soccer career.

Having the opportunity to play at the highest levels possible as a youth has exposed me to the different techniques and approaches coaches use to develop players. Here at High Performance Academy (HPA) you get the best of both worlds. There are hands on trainers that create fundamentally sound session’s that are age specific to help the progression of your soccer career. Before going back to college I would train with HPA to make sure I was fundamentally sound and as fit as possible. In doing so, I have been able to put myself in great positions to take advantage of the opportunities when they arise. I truly believe that HPA is changing the way personal training is being perceived. Along with the vast knowledge and creativity of the drills that are being produced by this academy it aims to give you a personal experience that you can enjoy. “
