​Liberty​ ​High​ ​School​ ​Soccer

The​ ​Liberty​ ​High​ ​School​ ​Soccer​ ​Team​ ​is​ ​a​ ​sure​ ​goal.​ ​I​ ​have​ ​been​ ​playing for​ ​the​ ​team​ ​for​ ​two​ ​seasons​ ​and​ ​for​ ​both​ ​of​ those seasons​ ​the​ ​soccer​ ​team has​ ​demonstrated​ ​skill​ ​and​ ​sportsmanship.

On​ ​my​ ​first​ ​season​ ​with​ ​the​ ​team,​ ​we​ ​won​ ​the​ ​PSAL​ ​trophy, and​ ​each​ ​of​ ​the team​ ​members​ ​got​ ​a​ ​medal.​ ​The​ ​second​ ​season​ ​we​ ​made​ ​it​ ​to​ ​the​ ​finals, and​ ​although​ ​we​ ​did​ ​not​ ​win​ ​the​ ​PSAL​ ​trophy,​ ​we​ ​did​ ​get​ ​medals​ ​for​ ​the second​ ​time​ ​in​ ​a​ ​row.​ ​During​ those two seasons,  ​we​ ​only​ ​lost​ ​a​ ​few​ ​games​ ​to the​ ​competition.​ ​They​ ​could​ ​not​ ​beat​ ​us!

But​ ​Liberty​ ​High​ ​School’s​ ​Soccer​ ​Team​ ​cannot​ ​take​ ​all​ ​the​ ​credit.​ ​​ ​We​ ​could not​ ​have​ ​won​ ​those​ ​championships​ ​if​ ​not​ ​for​ ​the​ ​relentless​ ​training​ ​and hard​ ​work​ ​that​ ​Mr.​ ​Kassim​ ​dedicated​ ​to​ ​the​ ​team.​ ​He​ ​inspired​ ​us​ ​and​ ​had made​ ​us​ ​proud​ ​of​ ​ourselves​ ​and​ ​Liberty​ ​High​ ​School.​ ​​ ​We​ ​are​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the best​ ​PSAL​ ​teams​ ​in​ ​the​ ​borough​ ​of​ ​Manhattan.   

I​ ​started​ ​playing​ ​soccer​ ​as​ ​a​ ​little​ ​boy​ ​in​ ​my​ ​native​ ​country,​ ​Senegal.​​ ​It​ ​is​ ​my​ ​dream​ ​to​ ​one​ ​day​ ​become​ ​a​ ​professional​ ​soccer​ ​player, and​ ​I am​ ​currently​ ​playing​ ​for​ ​the​ ​NYC​ ​Metro​ ​Stars.​ ​Liberty​ ​High​ ​School,​ ​The NYC​ ​Metro​ ​Stars, and​ ​Mr.​ ​Kassim​ ​have​ ​opened​ ​the​ ​door​ ​for​ ​me​ ​for​ ​a​ ​future as​ ​a​ ​soccer​ ​player.
