Alex Morgan!


By: Maeghan Mclain

 

Your teamate passed you the ball, you say in your head, “keep going, you got it, it was an amazing pass your teammates are counting on you.” You shot the ball, your teammate was running at you but you could not see the goal or the ball. You slipped and fell. Had you scored or do they think your hert. Then, you saw your teamate and player after, player and they all were yelling you scored, you scored. It was your first goal on the national team, your team was cheering very loudly. You could see your mom and dad in your brain cheering and screaming. I blew a kiss to my dad which I thanked him for everything he has helped you for playing soccer with him almost every day. You were thinking all my hard work payed off. And your dad really helped you. A minute later the whistle blew, we win! You was thrilled!

Introduction!

      

     Based off A True Story!

This is a picture of Alex Morgan being a leader!!! She is also, pointing to one of her teamates. 

I was in the baseball stadium stadium with my dad and I started to think, and what I was thinking of was what would change my career. I thought all those sports I played, not happening, it's soccer. So I turned to my dad, (scaredly) - my dad played baseball and he dreamed of his little girl (me) playing baseball. I said "I like soccer, I like to run." I saw the shock in my dads face which made me think I am really scared now, is he mad? It all started that day, right then, right there!!! Your name is Alex Morgan! Alex Morgan's full name is Alexandra Patrica Morgan. Alex was born on July, 2 1989. Alex was born in San Dimas, Calofornia. Morgan play a position of a forward or striker. Do you know what a forward or striker is? A striker is a person who connects the forwards and defence. Like a like to call it, the game maker. They tend to score a lot of goals, which fits Alex Morgan very well. Alex Morgan is a goal scorer. But back to a forward or striker, you have to be vey fast. Alex Morgan had a speed coach. To be a forward or striker you need to be reallly fast. I wonder if that is why she got a speed coach. From my experience in soccer, you need to run, up and down the field. That is important so you can lose defenders and score more goals. You have a beter chance of scoring. Morgan plays for the Portland Thornsand New York Flash, and the national team. She is currently in France! Alex Morgan wears the number 13.

 

Childhood! 

 

This is Alex Morgan when she was playing as AYSO, it is the moment that she started to enjoy soccer!

Do you have somebody who you love and you hang out with?Well that person to Alex Morgan is her dad. His name is Michel Morgan. Alex Morgan is the youngest in her family, she has two sisters(Jeni and Jeri) I am the oldest and sometimes I like it, for example I get to sit in the front seat have way more sleepovers and way more perks, but there are cons, you have to get blamed on for everything. And sometimes you get so annoyed of your younger sister. But younger sisters get away with EVERYTHING. Alex Morgan is a really good at soccer but shockingly did not start playing club soccer till she was 14. She actually did not make the cut the first time she ever tried out for a team. Wow, that is crazy, I started playing club soccer at like 6. And she started at 14. Big difference. She really had to work hard to be in the US national team now. And she started US national camps at 17 which means she had three years to give herself a chance and its either make it at they age around 17 or just play soccer for college and the fun of it. Alex Morgan got married to a soccer player named Servando. Servando plays for Orlando City- another good soccer team.He is also a great soccer player. Alex Morgan has a intresting nickname, it is babyhorse. I think Alex Morgan has the nickname of Baby horse because she was the baby of a lot of things, for example at home she was the baby and for a few years of soccer she was the baby. And I think she got horses from her speed- she is fast and so are horses so it makes sence. Alex Morgan had to work hard as you can tell.
