Get To Know Me (Future of the Game) –  Meredith Proctor 

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.

Parent(s)/Guardian(s): Steve and Cathy Proctor 

High School Soccer Team: Burke Girls Varsity Soccer

Position: Anywhere on defense but I am playing Right Back this year. 

Club Team: Nebraska Roots 06G I. 

What grade are you currently in? 9th 

What is your favorite subject in school?

Spanish because learning a new language and about a  different culture is really fun and interesting.

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

As an  individual player, I want to become more confident on the field. I also want to focus less on the  outcomes of the game and focus more on what I can do better to grow as a player. I want to achieve  these goals by identifying my weaknesses and putting forth effort towards what needs to be better.

 What goals do you have for your high school team during the 2021 season and beyond?

As a team, I  hope we are always tight-knit like a family on and off the field. As a high school team, we spend so much  time together because of practices almost everyday and games every week. When you are close and  comfortable around your teammates, I feel like it’s a lot easier to communicate with each other and  work well together.

Who’s your favorite soccer player and why?

Kelley O’Hara because she is a powerful female athlete  and I look up to her a lot especially because she plays defense, so I like to watch her to try and  constantly improve my game.
