What is your favorite soccer moment while playing with Utah FC? One time in a game it was tied and we only had a few minutes left and the other team kicked the ball badly or something so I got the ball. I was at the half line and I saw some forwards running so they could receive the ball from me. I dribbled and did some jukes and passed about 4 people. I realized that I was just above the 18 so I chipped it up and one of my forwards trapped it and made a goal. We won the game and then did really well with the rest of the season.
What is a saying your coach says that you will always remember? "While you're not working at it, they're getting better!"

What is a piece of advice you would give a younger Utah FC player? Don't give up and work on your weaknesses. I was really (like really) bad at footwork my first season but I didn't give up and I kept learning new tricks and now footwork is one of my biggest strengths on the field.
