AUBURN, Ala. – Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Alyse Scott was named to the Southeastern Conference’s Soccer Community Service Team, announced this week by the conference office.
In only her second year on the Auburn campus, Scott has gone above and beyond to help out her community when she isn't on the soccer field. Each week, she goes to the Boykin Community Center and plays with as well as mentors 4-6 year olds for two hours. She is also part of the SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee) that raised over $7,000 for Hunger Week, in which all proceeds went to the Alabama Food Bank.
With SAAC, she has also been able to participate in the Salvation Clothing Drive. This year, she and the soccer team brought in almost 15 pounds of clothes for the needy. Last year, she also helped wrap over 200 presents for Toys for Tots.
Next semester, she is getting the opportunity to travel with the Auburn Global Challenge Fellows to Philadelphia for their spring break. There, she and the group will do a week of volunteer work through Campus Philly, which partners up with various non-profits around the Philadelphia area.
Scott played in 10 matches this season, starting eight and logging nearly 700 minutes on the field for the Tigers. She allowed only nine goals in those games and finished with three wins all shutouts in her first full season as an active player.
