Q: What is your favorite thing about Rush Soccer?
A: My favorite thing about Rush is how it’s like a family and all the teams and coaches work together to make each other better. 
Q: What is your favorite memory since joining Rush Soccer? 
A: My favorite memories since joining Rush are all the small moments at games, practices, and tournaments where I’m just having fun and laughing with my teammates and coaches. 
Q: What Core Value do you like the most and why? 
A: My favorite core value is UNITY because soccer is a team sport and if you don’t have unity then you’re never going to win. I also wouldn’t be the player or the person I am today without my teammates. 

Coach's Comments: 

"She spent 80% of the season rehabbing to get back to game shape after an injury. She came to every training, sat in the cold, rain, took stats at the game, and kept grinding. 

This past weekend we went to Memphis and it was her first weekend back. She made a huge impact in the middle of the field for us. Super proud of all her hard work to get back to the field."

 


 

Q: What is your favorite thing about Rush Soccer?
A: I really like the club because of the coaches, especially my head coach Bob Cadwell because he’s always helping me get better and has helped me be the player I am today. The coaches take soccer seriously but they also make it fun. I like that they provide extra training and we can go up to the fields, which are really nice and well maintained, and practice anytime we want to.
Q: What is your favorite memory since joining Rush Soccer? 
A: I have a lot of good memories. My favorite is when our Rush team won the Winter Classic tournament in 2021. Coach Bob said we all played really well but we had one plaque and they named me MVP and let me keep it for the entire team. I have it on my dresser.  I do know that it takes an entire team to win and I really like and respect all of my teammates. They are all awesome and it takes all of us working together and playing well to win games.
Q: What Core Value do you like the most and why? 
A: It’s hard to pick one because they are all important but the one that stands out to me is LEADERSHIP. I try and encourage our team to work as hard as we can when we’re at practice and listen to Coach Bob. I also ask my teammates to go up to the Rush fields and practice more.
I don’t only want to get better as a player but I also want to get better as a team because I know we’re all passionate about the game and want us to win as many tournaments and games as we can while demonstrating good sportsmanship.
I also think ACCOUNTABILITY is important because you won’t get better if you don’t hold yourself accountable. I’m always happy when I do well but I talk to my Coach and dad when I don’t do well so I can improve.

Coach's Comments:

Karson continually shows leadership on and off the field. Not only is he a tremendous athlete and top forward in his age group but Karson displays great leadership off the field. He is always reaching out to other teammates wanting to hang out outside of soccer to get to know them better on a personal level. He also reaches out to teammates to go and train on their own and work on things that can better their own individual and team performance. To be great at anything you do, you must put in the work, and Karson not only does that, but he leads others to work hard as well. He shows examples of several Rush Core Values, Leadership, Respect, Accountability, Tenacity, Unity, and most importantly Enjoyment.
