Dear Coach Jones:

I am writing to introduce myself to you and to express my interest in your soccer and academic programs at University of San Diego.

I will be a junior at Maranatha High School in Pasadena, CA and will graduate in June, 2009. I have had considerable success in soccer with the LAFC Chelsea Club program as well as with the high school team at Montgomery High School. I would like to play college soccer and I am committed to maintaining my best grades and highest athletic levels. I would like to play at a Division I school; however, if that opportunity is not available I will consider Division II programs.

I am confident that Maranatha High School has prepared me for the rigors of college academics. I am excited about the possibility of playing soccer and pursuing an academic credential.

I have enclosed a copy of my Athletic Profile from LAFC Chelsea. It highlights my achievements on and off the field.

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. I will contact you again as follow-up to this letter. Good Luck with your team!
