MMA’s soccer season is coming to a close. To honor the team as they finish a strong season, I interviewed current sophomore, Natalie Coughlin, on what she loves about being apart of MMA’s soccer team!

Q: What do you love most about being apart of MMA’s soccer team?

    A: I love knowing that I will always have people who have my back. If there is anything I have learned from being on the team, it is that you will never feel alone. It is never just about one player or a couple of players, it is about everyone coming together and working as one.

Q: How has soccer helped you become a better student?

    A: As a student, it is important to know how to work well with others, have good time management, and to give your best effort. Fortunately, soccer has played a major role in helping me develop these key skills, which have helped me become a better student overall.

Q: How have you grown as a player in the past year?

    A: Just as everyone else, I continue to grow and learn each day as a player. It does not matter how many years a person has been playing. As an athlete, it is always important to stay in the mindset of wanting to better yourself as individual and as a team player.

Q: Your team’s mantra for the year is “Whatever It Takes.” How do you work to live that mantra on and off the field?

A: It it is important to realize that there will be times in your life where you will not be able to control certain outcomes, such as getting the grade you want or winning a game, but one thing that you do have control of is the effort you put in. I live this year’s mantra by never giving up and through hard work both on and off the field.
