This January, we’ve selected Maddie Marotta as our Athlete of the Month. Maddie has been training for soccer with us for a year and a half now and has recently chosen to play at Texas Christian University.
Maddie has worked really hard and dedicated herself to improving and staying in shape on and off-season. She has been training with Don Jupp, Chris McGovern and Josh Petchel.
“Don, Chris and Josh have helped me get stronger and pushed me to my full potential,” Maddie said. “They are very encouraging and have been very supportive through my whole recruiting process.”
Maddie began playing soccer 13 years ago because her brother played and she wanted to be just like him.
She plays outside back and holding midfield and chose TCU because she felt it was a perfect fit both academically and athletically.
“I really liked the support they give to athletes,” Maddie said. “The school is beautiful and I think I will have a lot of fun there.”
Maddie’s favorite subject in school is anatomy. In her free time she enjoys watching hockey, hanging out with friends, and going to the movies.
Her favorite soccer players are Ryan Giggs and Dani Alves.
We want to wish Maddie good luck on her journey with TCU and thanks for making our jobs worthwhile at the Center.
