Meet exercise science majors:
Cameron’s dream is to coach soccer and eventually take over an athletic department at the college level, and he’s not wasting any time to achieve his goals.
Since he was a sophomore at LaGrange, he has coached varsity soccer at Springwood School, a private pre-kindergarten through 12th grade institution, in Lanett, Ala.
“I originally did an internship there,” he says.
The opportunity lead to his current coaching position.
“I coach high school juniors and seniors, but this past season I had several eighth graders because we’re kind of building a team from scratch.
“It’s different because I’m only 22 and the players are eighteen, so they’re around my age. We’ve found ways to connect with each other, so it’s been a blessing.
“I’m able to give back what I’ve learned from playing soccer. I want to give it to these students at an earlier age than when I was learning. By teaching them the skills that I have now, they’ll have what they need to further their expertise on the field.
