Triple-Impact Competitor® Finalist, Class of 2017
Jefferson High School
Kristina Rogers is a soccer and flag football player from Jefferson High School. Before focusing on her own strengths, Kristina first learns about her teammates so she can help them become better athletes and encourage them in the future. “As an athlete, the number one aspect to make myself better is to first get to know my teammates, try to gain a bond with them, because if not I wouldn’t know their strengths or weaknesses on the field in order to play well together. I also use words of encouragement. Everyone, including me, is going to need that extra push during the last minute or second quarter of the game, it brings joy when you hear your teammates on the sideline cheering you on, it lets you know you're doing something right. Playing the sports that I love, the end results don’t bother me as much because at the end of the day, honoring the game matters the most.”
Kristina's coaches recognize her selfless attitude and positive impact on teammates, even giving her the opportunity to be a captain as a sophomore. “Kristina has a positive impact on her teammates. She is always supportive of her goalie and firm with her fellow teammates when shouting out openings she sees on the field. Off the field, she is friends with everyone having never had difficulty working with players regardless of how closely she knows them outside of soccer. She was given the opportunity to be captain for a game last year (even as a sophomore) because of her positive impact on the team. Kristina works hard to improve not only herself but her teammates as well. Often it is hard to find a player willing to play defense exclusively (as they want to score goals). She loves playing soccer because she loves the sport itself.”
