US Soccer star Christie Rampone spoke to a bunch of student-athletes at Southern Regional High School late last month to inspire them to be all that they can be in their future endeavors. The soccer star made sure that they understood the importance of hard word and discipline, and reminded them that in retrospect life really isn’t fair, so you need to use what you learn on the fields and courts to help you get through it. She also made sure to point out that getting a concussion is a very serious deal, and if they happen to get one while playing their game they need to take care of it properly to minimize the long term effects.
The Fort Lauderdale, Florida native moved to New Jersey at a young age and was a four-sport athlete in soccer, basketball, track and field hockey during her high school years. Amazingly enough, being so versatile in sports gave her the opportunity to be the first female athlete in New Jersey history to be the leading scorer in three different sports. She ended up attending Monmouth University in West Long Branch, NJ where she played soccer while earning her degree in Special Education. In 1997 she was selected to be a part of the Central Jersey Splash as well as a member of the United States Women’s National Team. These days when she isn’t playing for the USA, she takes the field with Sky Blue FC in New Jersey.
Rampone showed up to speak to a group of high school athletes at the end of April and she was a big hit with everyone there.
