Samantha Moodt #22
Class of 2021
I began playing soccer at the age of 7. It didn't take me long to realize that this sport was my passion. I started my soccer career with the club, TASC (Tecumseh Area Soccer Club) where I played as a keeper. I was brought out of goal at age 11 when my coach noticed what I could do on the ball with my speed. Later on, I switched to the club, FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) where I grew as a player in the striker position. My freshman year was a success for both my academics and athletics. I ended the school year with a 3.6 GPA. My sports consisted of the junior varsity basketball team during my off season the high school varsity soccer team in the spring. I truly enjoyed my freshman year of high school soccer, and believe I left my mark. I am looking forward to upcoming seasons with my high school team. This fall I will be playing with my new club team, Michigan Rush Jackson. My future profession is yet to be decided, but it's always been a dream of mine to play soccer in college.
Coach Goodman: Samantha had an epic 2018 season and was awarded with the County Player of the Year, as well as District and League first-team. The scary thing: she has so much room to improve as a player, and she is just a freshman! Samantha has lightning speed and can win the race with almost every defender and while this is the case she is also a poacher of goals in the box and is good in the air. Her play style reminds me of Alex Morgan from the US Women’s national team, they play similar in style as well as sharing mannerisms in play, she could easily play at the top level in college as a Freshman, but to think what she can bring to a college team in 3 years when she tweaks her play to be even faster and improve on overall game IQ its going to by scary! She has already been to almost every off-season training and can be seen with a ball on vacations and at home. I can’t wait for her to be unleashed in 2019, she will have a target on her back this season, and I know she can handle the pressure to succeed!
