David Beck- Virginia Tech 

“I definitely felt like pursuing running at the next level was something I was interested in. I loved every moment of high school XC, indoor track, and outdoor track, so now wasn’t the time to stop that journey. VT was super welcoming and accommodating, so that made my decision pretty easy. I’ve had really supportive family members, friends, and coaches throughout the process. I’m eternally grateful for that. I’m super excited to compete at the next level. I’ve been binge watching collegiate races over the past few months. It just makes me more amped up for this crazy opportunity. I’m hyped to being involved with a great group of people who are all passionate about running.”

Jaiden Brooks- Frostburg State University 

“I wanted to become a better individual and allow myself to not only grow academically but athletically as well. I feel very confident, ever since I was a kid I want to play soccer at the highest level possible, and I finally earned a chance to do that. I’m mostly looking forward to fighting for the starting goalkeeper spot.”

“What led me to committing is the fact that I really love the sport. When I met my coach and talked to him about my fears, weakness and strengthens it seemed like a perfect fit for me. I feel very excited about my future because I know there is a lot in store for me. I am excited for the simple things like my classes and my work study job because it will all be different than I’m used to. I like that I will be in my city and close to my family while getting this experience. I want to help my team set some new records and maybe even help lead them to an ODAC championship.”

Edwin Rios- Mary Baldwin University 

 “I love the sport [of soccer] and just having the chance to play at the next level feels great just shows that hard work and dedication pays off. I’m a little nervous for a new start but also confident in what I can accomplish at the end of the day, I just have to keep on grinding and be consistent. I’m excited to be able to be the first one in my family to go on to college.”
