I am originally from Germany and played there for over 10 years for Hertha BSC (Pro Team in Berlin). Four years ago, I came to the United States because I received a full-ride at the University of San Diego. My dream came true! I was lucky enough to study and play soccer in one of the most beautiful cities with palm trees everywhere I looked. I competed at the highest collegiate level in the United States, played in the biggest college soccer stadiums against strong programs, and studied on one of the most beautiful campuses in the USA. I rounded up my excellent soccer career with a Bachelor`s degree and now live in sunny San Diego, ready to help the next generation achieve their dreams as well.
The sky is the limit. This will be one of the biggest chances for something truly amazing in your life. Use all of the resources at your school, work hard in the classroom and on the field, enjoy every day, and follow your dreams and goals with discipline, motivation, and commitment!

WHAT IS AN ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIP?
Athletic as well as academic scholarships are much more common in the US than in most other countries. Athletic scholarships are awarded to athletes of outstanding performance in order to enable them to finance their studies in the US. The athlete participates fully in practice sessions with the college team and represents the university in various tournaments and competitions. The coaches’ job is to professionally look after the teams; in this sense, he has a similar position to that of a professor and is also paid accordingly.
For what reasons are scholarships awarded?
For generations, American universities have had college teams in all kinds of sports. These teams are professionally managed by specially employed coaches and serve as an advertisement for the respective university in numerous competitions. If a team has regional or even nationwide success, the media will cover its development. That is why college teams are a means to market the university in order to recruit new students. For this reason, the universities provide the coaches with a budget to recruit talented athletes from around the world and help them finance their studies or even their entire stay abroad.
Why an athletic scholarship to America
The American College system produces some of the best sporting talent in the world. The facilities, coaching and support networks including sports science, nutrition, physiotherapy and fitness training are all world class. Universities travel the length and breadth of the United States to play each other; it is big business involving, massive corporate sponsorship, fanatical crowds, rich history, and national television coverage. Collegiate sports are as close to a professional environment as it’s possible to get. A normal schedule involves one to two training sessions or practices a day plus additional sports specific weights and fitness sessions within in a normal athletic scholarship. All this alongside a full university degree program.
