    Getting back in the game. Literally.

    So I played soccer from the ages of 3-9. I was an excellent player, always picked first. My dad was a fantastic soccer player, he got a full ride scholarship to become an engineer. So that's kind of where I get it from. Whenever I played I felt so alive, it's always been my true calling. I had numerous offers to come train at professional colleges, everyone thought I had a bright future in soccer. I did too, until the December I was 9. I had an Appendicitis attack and almost died. My parents couldn't afford rehab for me because the bill was so high($63,000-to this day we're still paying it off). It was so tramatic for me, I had to completely learn everything over-I was that sick. I couldn't run like I used to, or anything. I couldn't even touch my toes for about 3 years, because my back was so messed up. Well, I'm moving to a new school next year and want to start up again. I have already started getting clear on my dietary needs. I've been doing pilates and am planning an exercise routine to get in shape. I'm also going to start training again. I am starting highschool next year, and am a terrific student. I always get good grades, and had a 3.75 GPA for this semester. I want to go to UCLA, to play soccer for them. And if I ever had a chance to go pro. I would, even though it's highly unlikely. I have no idea what I want to major in, though. So basically I'm wondering if you think I could do it? And if UCLA is a good school?

    Hi! If you havent played soccer since you were 9, and had to completly relearn everything, you might find that it will be very hard to get back into the game like you once were. I have played club soccer since I was 7/8, and still play, in my teens. It is great that you want to play again, and I hope you do! Good news is, you have four years before you go to college, so that gives you four years to completely recover and play some more! What position did you play? Im a defender.
