Another non-soccer post from Freedom Soccer Club?! Yup. As much as we love our soccer-first and soccer only players, we are proud that we can also support dual sport athletes who play multiple sports at a high level.
Maddy McDaniels was an original member of FSC Blast – G2003.
She played with Blast from u8 to u18 and was an important member of Liberty High School’s girls soccer team, all while also swimming competitively.
FSC would like to congratulate her on her commitment to Case Western Reserve University where she will continue her swimming career.
If there is a model of the FSC way, it has to be G2003/02 Blast (HC Erik Johnson). The team wrapped up their FSC careers today with a 4-0 victory and fittingly Coach Johnson’s daughter Grace scored the final goal.
What is the FSC way?
The team has 5 girls who have been on the team since its inception at u8. Several more have only played for Freedom. A couple joined at u9, others played for Freedom’s 02 team and joined Blast when most of the 02s graduated. 4 of the players will be continuing to play soccer in college, one will be playing lacrosse, and one will be swimming competitively.
The coaches had a vision for the team and constantly worked to make themselves better, the team better, and to find other coaches/trainers to assist with player development. They were incredibly caring, supportive role models for the players.
The team was successful in league play, tournaments, and consistently ranked in the top 20 of the state.
The parents believed in their daughters, the coaches, the team, and the club. They didn’t worry about the “next big thing” to come to the Carroll County or where the grass could potentially be greener. They supported the team in every way possible. FSC would like to thank them for their years of driving to practices and games, hosting team parties, organizing team events, organizing team dinners at overnight tournaments, and so many other things.
Congrats on a fantastic FSC run and we wish you the best in all of your future endeavors.
