Get To Know Me (Future of the Game) – Allison Marshall

At Nebraska Soccer Talk, we love covering everything soccer related. For the most part, that means covering games and providing analysis/opinions. However, our overall mission and purpose is far reaching and ambitious. Our goal is to bring the soccer community closer together through collaboration and communication.  There are countless people that deserve recognition for their efforts as a player, official, or coach. Throughout the season, we will be highlighting these individuals through our Get To Know Me articles.

This will be a series made up of three different components. All of which are meant to bring attention to the soccer community.

  1. Get To Know Me (Coach Edition) – These individuals are responsible for building their programs, growing the game of soccer, and mentoring the next generation. We look forward to learning about their lives and philosophies.
  2. Get To Know Me (Player Edition) – This article series will focus on high school juniors and seniors that have demonstrated themselves to be quality players and people. With these features, our community will learn about some of the most impressive players in the state.
  3. Future of the Game – This article series will focus on the freshmen and sophomore classes. These are players that we will be covering for years to come.

Thank you to every individual that provided information for this idea. We appreciate your thoughtful and timely responses.

What is your favorite subject in school? Why? 

My favorite subject in school is math. I like math because I enjoy the challenge of solving new problems every day. I have also had many math teachers that make learning new concepts enjoyable.

What are your goals as an individual player? What are you doing to achieve those goals? 

My goals as an individual player are to get better every time I step on the field and to always give 100% effort. I want to be the best teammate I can be by encouraging others and being positive. To achieve these goals I have to make sure that I am always focused and ready for any challenges that come my way.

What goals do you have for your high school team during the 2021 season and beyond? What do you hope to accomplish as a group throughout your high school career? 

My goals for my high school team during the season is to take one game at a time and improve all throughout the season. Another goal is to never let another team out compete us. We focus on being confident and dealing with failure the right way.

Who’s your favorite soccer player and why?

My favorite soccer player is Alex Morgan because I have watched her ever since I was a little girl. She is a very hard worker and always gives 100% effort every play. It’s also very fun to see her play a game that she loves.
