Get To Know Me (Future of the Game) – Madelyn White

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.

What is your favorite subject in school? Why?

My favorite subject in school is Biology because I feel it comes easy to me.  I love learning about all the different cells and how species have evolved.

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

My goals as an individual player are to become unpredictable and move off the ball better.  To achieve these goals, I come to practice ready to work hard and learn from not only my coaches but my teammates as well.  I will also train on my own.  A future goal of mine is to play ball in college and beyond.

Who’s your favorite soccer player and why?

Tobin Heath is by far my favorite player because she is athletic, passionate, and a great leader. Tobin gives her all every game and takes control of the field.
