By Joshua Crosby

Joshua Crosby (born February 4th, 2001) Im a Canadian soccer player that attends Anderson Collegiate Vocational Institute in Whitby, Ontario. I am sophomore striker for my high school team and rep team Whitby Iroquois Soccer Club. I claim that I am one of the best players in Ontario and I've received many awards through my athleticism. One of my awards were a Player Of The Game because I had scored a hat trick that game.

I have been playing soccer ever since the age of 2 and I loved it ever since. My mother would tell me that she would watch me kick the ball hard at such a young age in our backyard. One of my strengths are my fantastic scoring ability. I've always been one of the top scorers on every single team I have been on. I just love the feeling when you fake out your opponent one way and cut back the ball to score a goal that will get the crowd screaming.

My weakness would be decision making because of the strategies that are going on through my head on whether if I should pass the ball with a one touch or show off my skills and dribble up the pitch.

What I've really been working on is training during off season with or without my rep soccer club. I have put many hours of training with friends and coaches. I've also been watching professional players play just to work on strategies to improve my gameplay and mindset. I know that one day all my hard work will pay off.

A long term goal is to receive a scholarship from a college. I've always wanted to become a professional soccer player ever since I was a kid and I will do anything to be put into that position.

Playing soccer have only given me postive experiences and memories that I will never forget. Most of those memories were me training to where I am now and the motivation I get from friends and family. Even though I have a great passion for soccer I always remember that I give it up to God and thank him for helping me on my soccer journey.

I've also had been given the opportunity to be invited to TopDrawerSoccer Camps, UnderAmour US college soccer ID camp, International Residential Camp in Miami with the Paris Saint- Germain Academy, and many more. My most honorable invite was the US Selection Boy's Soccer 2017. US and Canada were trying to select youth boys for international tournaments and tours and I was chosen as one of the selected boys.
