Q&A with Evelyn Nicinski:
1. Question: What advice do you have for the young girls of Clarkstown Soccer Club that want to have a career in soccer?
Answer (Evelyn): " I would tell the girls of Clarkstown Soccer Club to follow their dreams no matter what, and to know that nothing is out of reach! I tore my ACL last year during my senior season at Bucknell and that easily could have been the end of my soccer career but I knew In my heart I wanted to continue playing soccer and to play professionally so I worked hard to get back to achieve my dreams! It's not always easy and sometimes you hit bumps in the road and have to make sacrifices but in the end I promise it's worth it when you achieve your dreams. I would also tell them to thank their parents for all they do, I would never be where I am now without my parents always driving me hours on end to practices and games and always being my biggest support system!"
2. Question: At what age did you realize that you wanted to become a professional soccer player?
Answer (Evelyn): "In my 5th grade yearbook I wrote that I wanted to become a professional soccer player when i grew up because it was my biggest passion in life at the time! Since then I would always flip back to that page in my yearbook and realize that soccer was still my biggest passion in my life and that I would love to pursue a career in soccer. But while it was always a dream of mine To become a pro soccer player I I don't think I really seriously considered that I could actually become a professional soccer player until I was probably 18 or later. Throughout college though I think is when I realized how much I had fallen in love with the sport and truly pursuing a career was something I wanted to do."
All of us at Clarkstown Soccer Club want to wish Evelyn all the best with her professional career !
