Work ethic… That by far the most important aspect of being successful in college soccer on the pitch. A high work ethic will catch your coaches eye, making him want to play you over other players. Come game time, your minutes will increase, and you will have the opportunity to truly make a difference in your games. In your games most battles will simply be won by the guy who wants it more, and you have to do everything you can to ensure that you’re that guy. Most players you face will be at about the same level as you talent-wise, but what sets apart the good and the great is work ethic. The guy who is willing to outwork their opponent and give 110% for every second on the pitch will come out on top.
