"I choose to play soccer because it’s been my way of life since I was 4 years old. It’s everything I watch, everything I play and live and that’s never going to change. Soccer allows me to embrace my competitiveness and gives me something to work for and challenges me. I play it to release stress, because it’s fun, and it makes me happy. There are so many different reasons on why I play soccer. I could never even picture naming them all. Soccer is not just basics of kicking a ball around a field, soccer takes mental strength, it lets me know that I’m not only doing this for myself, but I also I have a team that I’m fighting for, and that even in a hard game I have a team pushing with me. Soccer is my piece of peace that I’ve found in this chaotic world, and there’s no way I’m gonna give that up." -Ava Bradford
