Name: Mollee Ramsay
Age: 21
Sport: Soccer
Level: Varsity 

1. How long have you been playing soccer for? And what keeps you motivated? 

I've been playing soccer for 17 years. I always want to see what's the next level I can reach. I am always striving to be the best I can be on the pitch. My motivation comes from constantly wanting to one up my best performance. 

2. Who has been your biggest influence in your soccer career? 

My dad had been my biggest influence. I grew up around soccer and fell in love with it at a young age. His passion for the game transferred onto me and his belief that I could continue to excel in the sport encouraged me to continue past what I thought I could achieve. 

3. What is your most memorable moment as a soccer player? And what are your greatest accomplishments?

The most memorable moment as a soccer player was playing for the Everton Ladies youth academy on a visit. Since then, I have been working towards playing for the team. 

My greatest accomplishment is becoming the captain of my university team in my second season. 

4. How has training at the Athlete Factory affected your soccer game? What's the biggest difference you notice as a player?

Since training at Athlete Factory I have become more confident in my movements. I have more time on the ball because I can get there faster, which has improved my decision making because I can see plays quicker. Speed has always been my biggest weakness in soccer and although I worked to improve it seemed like something that was out of my control. After joining Athlete Factory, I have seen major improvements. Every movement that is taught is extremely applicable to my sport, which makes it easy to stay motivated because I can see direct results in my game. I come out of every session believing I have gotten faster and more powerful. 

5. What is your ultimate goal in soccer?

My ultimate goal is to play professionally in Europe for the Everton Ladies. 

6. What advice can you give young female soccer players who aspire to get to your level? 

Never lose sight of why you love soccer. You may not like early morning practices or tough conditioning sessions, but find a way to visualize how those tough days are fuelling your love for the game.
