Sophomore soccer forward Kelsey Petty

Q: Who do you look up to and why?

A: I look up to my older brother because he is goal oriented and always achieves what he strives for. He was the first person in my family to go to college and he has made the dean’s list every time.

Q: What is the most memorable moment in your college career?

A: My most memorable moment in my college career would be when I scored my first career goal for North Texas in the Nike Classic in New Mexico. It went into the top right upper 90. It was an awesome feeling.

Q: If you didn’t play soccer, what would you do?

A: If I didn’t play soccer, I would probably run track or try roller derby. That looks cool.

Q: Who do you look up to? Why?

A: I look up to my dad because he tries so hard in everything he does. He plays baseball, goes to work early every day and stays late every night.

Q: What is the most memorable moment in your college career?

A: My most memorable moment was when we won our conference. A team from Florida had to lose for us to win conference, so we were listening to the game on the radio and when the games ended, they lost. Being back-to-back conference champs is the best feeling ever.

Q: If you didn’t play soccer, what would you do?

A: I would play basketball if I didn’t play soccer because I played it in middle school and high school.

Q: Who do you look up to and why?

A: I look up to my parents. They both are the most hard working human beings that I’ve ever seen. My dad served 32 years in the Army and my mom served 20. I strive to work hard in my life like they have and are still doing.

Q: What is the most memorable moment in your college career?

A: My most memorable moment in college will probably be my first-ever collegiate touchdown my freshmen year against Western Kentucky. It finally made me feel that I could really play division I football after that moment. We also ended up winning that game

Q: If you didn’t play your sport, what would you do?

A: If I wasn’t playing football, I would have tried to make it in track and field. I began to get really good at the triple jump during my high school years until I put my focus solely on football.
