Five Questions with Rebecca

Someone you follow on Twitter: Most of the people I follow on Twitter are my friends. But I follow Brandon Phillips from the Cincinnati Reds. He's definitely one of my favorite Reds players. He seems like a chill person and his tweets always crack me up. I would love to meet him too!

Special sports accomplishments: My freshman year at Mercy High School I made the varsity soccer team. I was the only freshman on the team. It was an intimidating experience, but it is one I will never forget. That opportunity gave me an appreciation for high school soccer that I thought I would never have. Also, my junior year I made first team all GGCL for the league my school belongs in. I played basketball for 3 out of my 4 years at Mercy. My junior year we played in a tournament in Jefferson City, Missouri. We made it to the championship and we won! I was given the award for All Tournament Team. I was truly proud of myself and I felt like I had accomplished something.

What do you like to do outside of your sport: Outside of my sport that I'm playing at Hanover, which is soccer, I love basketball. I enjoy it just as much as soccer. I love listening to music as well! I'm always up for a good time or a new adventure. I love to visit new places and meet new people.

Favorite quote: One of my all time favorite quotes is from the movie Coach Carter. It's the first part of a speech the coach gives to his team. The quote is "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure." it's stuck with me ever since I've heard it. I love that it speaks to the team and not just one individual. Soccer, and basketball, are teams sports. You can't win a team sport alone. You have to have confidence and trust in one another to pick each other up and work hard together. Being part of a team is one of the best things in my life.

Any stupid human tricks or abilities: I do not think I have any stupid human tricks or abilities!
