Any athlete dreams about going into the big leagues. Not everyone makes it, but people who do, don’t just do it in their sleep. They play hard, work hard, and do it daily to improve themselves. Avery Cambria, a Senior here at Rodriguez, plays for the soccer team and is ready to graduate and play at Doane University in Nebraska. She verbally committed last year, and is signing her letter of intent on February 6 of this year. Playing at college level is a whole new perspective, but Avery is able to take whatever comes her way.

Her journey with soccer, started when she was 3 years old playing at Real Colorado Club. Her talent was shown at 15 years old, playing for U19 North Bay Elite FC with girls that were twice her age, and size. Avery plays all year round and doesn’t have time for breaks; she has work to do once she steps on the field. “I knew ever since i was little, that I wanted to play college soccer.” Avery started her recruitment process back when she was a freshman, and started on varsity that same year.  

 

Even though her high school season opened a lot of possibilities for her, it wasn’t all that easy. Avery’s typical week consists of soccer practice, working out about 5 times a week at the gym, work, and keeping a 3.8 gpa. Throughout her high school career, she has had two torn ligaments and 4 ankle surgeries. She was out most of her junior season, which is scary for athletes, since junior year is mandatory for recruitment. Even though she was unable to walk on her ankle or her leg, she still went to the gym to get herself back to full recovery. She said, “One thing soccer taught me, is how to stay dedicated, and these last four years really showed me how much this sport means to me.” Avery said one thing she would want to tell any athlete is, “No matter what you go through as an athlete, continue to follow with your dreams because you never know what could happen.”
