Christopher Wehan remembers the first time he knew soccer came natural to him. At a soccer practice when he was 6 or 7 years old, his coach asked to see how far he could kick the ball, and his went the farthest.
Now a junior majoring in organizational communication, Wehan said the sport taught him about life.
"(Soccer) gave me an education,” he said. “I think a lot of the things I learned in life, I learned through soccer like how to deal with hardship, injures. It has given me the best friends I will ever have, and the best opportunity to travel the world."
Wehan's best game was when he scored two points against Old Dominion this season.
"This season was pretty good, personally,” he said. “It was a really good season for myself. I scored a lot of goals and got to play a lot, but as a team we didn't reach our goals and expectations, so at the end of the day it’s kind of a bummer, kind of a sad end to things. But overall it still was a great season.”
Next season, Wehan said his goals are "to be a better teammate and a better leader, rather than any goals on the field."
After graduating, Wehan plans to continue playing professional soccer, calling it “a dream of mine."
