Emily RichReno Football (Soccer)
I grew up in the small town called Coarsegold, California. When I was younger I was always overlooked. Why? I was extremely short. I have always been underestimated, which is fine by me. I play like I am 6', 4". How? While all the other girls were over a head taller than I was, I made up for it with speed. I just recently ran the 40 yard dash in 4.93 seconds. In the 7th grade, I had a doctor write me a prescription for PediaSure mixed with the most fattening ice cream possible. He said it might help with my growth, and to my amazement, it did. I am now 5 foot 5 inches. However, a fun fact about me, my feet did not grow the same size. I grew up with one foot growing over a size larger than the other, which made getting cleats difficult. I always had to buy two pairs, which started my signature look. I always have two different pair of cleats when I play. Both my feet are the same today, however, I have kept my different colored cleats. I won't play any other way.
I am a very humble athlete, and it's sometimes difficult for me to sell myself. I make it a point not to brag about myself, however, how am I to get sponsors if I don't highlight some of my achievements. So, here it goes… I was my High School MVP Junior and Senior year. I was High School All League MVP my Junior and Senior years, Here are goals I scored with the help of my teammates during my high school years (I don't have any sound because I didn't want to break any copywrite laws):

I also led in goals and assists during my first years of college at the University of Reno https://nevadawolfpack.com/sports/womens-soccer/roster/emily-rich/8375.

When I play soccer I want to win. I can not win games by myself. I need a team. I believe that we are currently building a team at the University of Reno that will provide us a great chance of winning. It starts with bonding. Girls that are willing to play for each other and go the distance. We can't be afraid of hard work, and hard work is what it's going to take. We have tough teams to play and we have to work harder than them.
Outside of soccer… I enjoy life. I love doing outdoor activities.

I am really interested in receiving a sponsor. I hope you have enjoyed me sharing a part of my life through the videos I have presented. Thank you for taking the time to read my description.
Our preferred sponsor
I enjoy receiving products, and of course monetary gifts are always pleasing to a college student athlete. But my ideal sponsor would be with a company of which I can use their products. I want to be genuine to myself and to your product.
I've worked extremely hard to get where I am today. I hope my story can inspire even just one little girl or boy to believe that dreams can come true with a little bit of grit and a whole lot of tenacity.
