The Red Ledger: Do you have any pre-game routines for soccer?

Kassidy Litchenburg: Before a game, I listen to a playlist and I don’t talk to anyone except my older brother, who I talk on the phone with, and I say a quick prayer with my teammates.

TRL: What are some of your goals for this upcoming soccer season?

KL: Being a freshman, one of my main goals is to letter in soccer this year, but from a more important team perspective, we want to make a run in the playoffs and form close bonds with one another.

TRL: How does soccer outside of school differ from school soccer?

KL: Outside of school, soccer is less of a team sport and it is more of an individual focus. In

school, you are representing your district, family, and team, while in club soccer, it is a lot of out of town tournaments and stats.

TRL: What are some strengths in your game?

KL: My main strengths are finishing goals, using speed and strength to win balls, and my determination to not stop until the whistle.

TRL: What are some things you can improve on in soccer?

KL: As a player, I can always become quicker, shoot harder and more accurate,and tighten my touches with extra skills and repetition.

TRL: If you didn’t play soccer, what sport would you play?

KL: I would play basketball, because I stopped playing this year in order to focus solely on soccer.

TRL: What motivates you as you train and practice in soccer?

KL: As I am practicing, the Lord truly motivates me to not only work for myself, but for my teammates too, for it says in 1 Peter 4:10, “as each has received a gift, use it to serve another, as faithful stewards of God’s grace.”

TRL: When did you decide that you wanted to focus only on soccer?

KL: I realized that I wanted to focus only on soccer during the Spring of last year.
