I played four varsity sports in high school (gridiron, track, football and basketball). I went to states with a relay team in North Carolina and made the state semi-finals in football (soccer). I also coached travel football for TFC (http://www.trianglefc.org/) and worked for Eurosport/soccer.com. I graduated from the University of New Hampshire School of Law, where I study intellectual property and sports law.

  1. I thought – really a rhetorical question – occurred to me tonight. Why does a right-footed keeper always end up on the left side of the field? Left back, left forward and in high school I played left mid one year.

    My Potential Answer:
    I think the reason is because as a keeper I’m not particularly good with either foot, so I’m not afraid to use my left. I don’t favor the right because I have little need to.

    Some clarification on my left forward play:
    Now, two of my goals were back post goals on corners and the other was actually with me having slid into the middle, but I definitely wasn’t playing on the right. I did have one moment of near brilliance with my right foot as I cut back on the left side and bent one in off the back post…but no goal.

    So, what do you think? Is it just coincidence I end up on the left or is there something to not being afraid of it?
