Happy Wisdom Wednesday from professional soccer player Colton Storm!
Colton started out his career at the University of North Carolina where he started 41 straight games from 2015-2016. His senior year he was a team captain, leading a defense that posted 12 shutouts in 21 matches. He capped his senior campaign in 2016 with Second Team All-Atlantic Coast Conference and NSCAA Third Team All-South Region honors. He was also named to the NCAA College Cup Best XI after guiding the Tar Heels to their seventh final four in program history.
Colton was then selected at the No. 14 overall pick in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft by Kansas City.
Here is a look into the mind of the talented Colton Storm:
1. What is one piece of advice you would give yourself 10 years ago? "If it is meant to be, it will be. If you want something bad enough, and are willing to take the failures with a grain of salt and move forward, you can do anything or be anything you want...but sometimes you have to try new things, go to new places, meet new people to get there."
2. If you could go 10 years into the future and ask yourself one question, what would it be? "I would ask myself, what ended up being the highest point of your career, how far did you make it and do you have any regrets?"
3. Pregame Routine "My routine starts every morning of game day, so 7 o clock game. Wake up and do a little jog/walk and stretch. Then have a large bfast at 9:45. And start consuming water, try to get 8-9 bottles by 5 pm. After bfast I turn my phone off and go to sleep, wake up a couple times to chug water, then have a pregame meal around 3:45. And then shower and clean my house/truck/laundry..and have everything perfect so when I come home I can chill and not worry about anything for a little while."
