Soccer Mentor: I've grown up around soccer my entire life. Our tv's at home were always on EPL games, and if i wasn't watching games on tv i was watching my older brother Matt or older sister Allie play. Honestly I would have to say my family members are my mentors. My parents and siblings give me great advice and I respect what they have to say about the game. If i had to pick a famous person... it'd be Christine Lily-hardworking, leader, long-career.
