My Students

The Lady Mustang Soccer program represents the best of what it means to be a student athlete. We want to develop leaders that understand the importance of teamwork, humility and perseverance. We expect our student athletes to be dedicated and committed to success in all areas of their lives.

The Lady Mustang Soccer team consists of 3 sport-athletes, scholars in the top 10% of the class or scholars taking all honors courses.

The students work hard in the classroom but I want them to have the same success and support on the field. Students come from all over the city of Memphis to participate in academics and athletics.

My Project

This is my second year coaching this team of wonderful young women and they are in need of uniforms and game day equipment. The girls on our team work hard all year to maintain good academic standing.

They are a group of athletic and academic achievers with big dreams but funding is limited for girls athletics.

It is disheartening for the team to see their male counterparts with matching uniforms and warm ups while our team has to borrow rugby jerseys. Help level the playing field! We need a home uniform jersey and away jersey, game day water bottles and portable benches for game day.
