Who do you want to thank? “I would like to thank my parents for helping me with the college process, my high school and club coaches for developing me as a player, and all my teammates for being there for me.”
Anything else you’d like to add about the process? It takes time and hard work to find the right college and even more work to get colleges to notice you as a player. It was a good, growing experience for me but I’m glad I have it all wrapped up.
