“I’m David Salinas. I grew up in Orem, Utah. My whole life has been based around soccer. I now play for the Westlake soccer team. I also run track, so basically my life has been built around sports. I’ve learned a lot from this – not only more about the sports I play, but more about myself too. My coach always tells me to push yourself and when you feel like giving up is when you push yourself even harder. I use that as a metaphor for my life when challenges arise it gets me through them.
I’m really grateful to be able to play the sports I love and have a passion for and I hope to be able to play those sports for a long time.” – David Salinas, Junior
