Get To Know Me (Future of the Game) – Mia McVay

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?

History because I find it interesting to learn about what life was like in the past.

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

My goals as an individual player is to earn an opportunity to play college soccer. In order to reach those goals, I am going to continue to work hard all the time, stay determined, focus on improving my skills, and be a good teammate. 

Who’s your favorite soccer player and why? 

Marcelo Vieira because he plays the same position as me. I also like watching how he masters that position, which helps me out with skills and things I can do in that position during my games.
