October player highlight is Anika Shah. She plays for Chris Uppington with the 2014 MetroWest Navy team.
We asked Coach Chris why he chose Anika: Anika is a model player. She is always early and will work on skills before practice. She is conscientious, kind and a great teammate. She asks great questions and gives 100% effort every practice. She is a privilege to have on the team.
NEF-She loves sharing and learning about our incredible female athletes! Please read below to get to know more about Anika!
I have been playing soccer for 2 ½ years now, starting in town and am on Coach Chris’ 2014 team.
My favorite player is Aitana Bonmati. I watched her during the world cup and love the way she plays! My favorite team to watch is the US Women’s National team.
Soccer is so much fun. I love the competition and being part of a team.
I usually have a fruit and yogurt smoothie. On the ride to games I like to listen to music; my favorite is ‘Believer’.
Soccer is about teamwork and the team. Everyone works together to score a goal.
My favorite things to do are spend time with my family and friends, read, and play chess.
My favorite food is pasta with salad, vacation place is the cape and love amusement park rides (I love roller coasters!).
Dribble with space, pass with pressure. Also, to never give up.
I think they would say I am hardworking, supportive and positive.
