Junior Caleb Mendoza is the captain of the boys varsity soccer team. His passion for soccer started at the young age of four, when his foot first touched a soccer ball.
Mendoza works tirelessly whenever he finds time to practice his techniques and train. He is incredibly humble and just wants to help his team advance.
“I don’t like saying anything about myself. I like bringing up other people. If people say I’m good I thank them, but I don’t think I’m better than anyone else. You can’t get cocky,” he said.
With all the years of experience under his belt he tries to boost others and give them advice to help them succeed in soccer and improve their skills.
“If you are trying to get really good, be consistent, practice constantly, eat well, train well, and try to be healthy. Play with other people and better, older players,” he said.
In terms of sports, division one soccer in college is his goal. His goals for school are to do well, get into a good college, and get a good job.
Mendoza hopes to become an engineer one day. The hands on and designing aspect of it appeals to him and he has always liked math despite its difficulty. He hopes to use his job to help support his family.
Mendoza is a hardworking individual who wants to help others succeed. He deserves to be recognized, and has a bright future ahead of him.
