He has a great attitude and always looks for the positive which I really admire. This years class has some versatile players, and Levi certainly adds to it. We are very happy to have Levi.

Levi always knew how to keep practices light hearted but never fell short on giving his full effort. He was a true team player literally playing every position on the field during my three years with him. He was always willing to go the extra mile and stay the extra time to improve and I know that mentality will help him to be an asset to the soccer program at Grace. He is leaving behind a tough spot to fill but I wish him all the best and God's continued blessings as he starts a new journey."
