Get To Know Me (Future of the Game) – Elizabeth Brezenski

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 year, 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 is 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.

 Elizabeth (Libbie) Brezenski


Parent(s)/Guardian(s): Kristie and Jon Brezenski
High School Soccer Team: Columbus Scotus Girls
Position: Forward/Attacking Midfield
Club Team: I used to play on the Columbus 2005 Calcio team which stands for kick in Italian, and I used to guest play on the Papillion Mystics Club team but I am not currently playing on a club team.
Grade: Sophomore.
What is your favorite subject in school? Why? 
I love science because it gives me a chance to better understand how everything “came to be.”
What are your future plans?
I want to attend a four year college and either major in business or pre-nursing. Those are two very different majors but I can see myself both running a bakery and helping in the medical field as a nurse anesthetist. 
Who’s your favorite soccer player and why? 
Growing up I loved to watch Carli Lloyd because I admired her goal scoring ability and I wanted to grow up to be just like her when I got older.
Who has helped you become the player that you are today? How did they help you? Is there anything you would like to tell them? 
My parents have influenced my love of soccer since I was practically born. They would take me to all their soccer practices and teach me how to do their moves so that I could learn from a young age of how the sport works. Now that I am at the age of the girls I grew up looking up to, it gives me a thought of ‘Wow. You have dreamed of these moments since you were little, now give it all you got.’ I want to say an immense thank you to them because I could not be where I am as a soccer player and as a person if I did not have such great people raising me.
Could you see yourself coaching soccer someday? Is that a path that you are interested in following? If so, why?
I want to be an assistant coach one day because I want to help other girls love the sport as much as I do and have fun and be successful while doing so. I want to follow in the footsteps of my parents and be able to have as much success as they have had in their years of coaching.
