Jessica McDonald – Courage On And Off The Field – Celebrating Soccer



I am Jessica McDonald forward for North Carolina courage and I love to celebrate soccer I grew up not in the best situation and I grew up being very competitive and whatever got me out of the house I was willing to do and so I believe growing up playing sports especially soccer and how competitive it is it brought it's brought me around the world and back and so all that work after going through major knee injury to becoming a mother and now I'm a two-time collegiate champion I'm a two-time Pro champion and now I'm working my way in with the USA team with 23 of the best female footballers I played for the fans because they showed not only me but my teammates a lot of love they they show us so much pride and love day in and day out and so when they get rowdy it gets me going it gets me fired up it gets me pumped up so when they're pumped up so are we they could start adrenaline going and so it's always nice for our fans to be engaged and that's what not only myself but my teammates we appreciate them most about the best advice that I can give to a young soccer player would be there are going to be times that you're going to lose there are gonna be times you are going to fail there going to be times people are going to tell you you can't do something or be something whatever it is you want to be whatever it is you wanted to accomplish if you want to be the best goal scorer for your team if you want to just simply put a smile on your parents face just by having a good game go and do that do what makes you happy get through all the failures get through all the adversity because we all go through it and know that when you do get through it something positive comes out of something negative and that will define your character for the rest of your life how you bounce back from those failures I chose soccer because I had so many more opportunities playing soccer in comparison to the other sports I called for some things in track I accomplished some things in basketball but to me being as competitive as there was growing up it just wasn't enough but with soccer it just gave me a little extra a little extra happiness a little extra competitiveness a little extra traveling and that was amazing like I said before I did everything that I possibly could to stay out of the house and saw her did that for me and so with all the opportunities that came along with soccer I think I made the right decision because look where I am today
