Former Shelbyville Central Golden Eaglette soccer player Sharaid Palmeros will continue her education as well as her playing career at UT Southern.
Palmeros was a vital member of the Golden Eaglette team over the past number of years.
“From the first time I saw Sharaid play I knew she was going places. What makes her such an exceptional player is her drive. She works hard on and off the field. She put in countless hours outside of practice working on her shots, skills, and corner kicks,” Shelbyville Central coach Cassy Curry said.
“To be a great athlete you have to put in the extra work. I am so proud of her and can't wait to see how she does at UT Southern.”
Palmeros is excited for this new adventure to begin.
“I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to play at the next level because it will allow me to truly push myself to see more of my athletic potential. I am looking forward to playing alongside such a high competitive team,” Palmeros said.
“I am excited to attend UT Southern because I really like how the campus is easy to navigate. I know it will make getting to my classes on time much easier.”
She will never forget the great times she had playing for Shelbyville Central.
“My best memories from high school would have to be spending time with my teammates because they always made soccer season so much fun, especially my best friend Paige (Blackburn). Going out to Gatlinburg to play and spend time with my teammates is one of my most cherished memories,” Palmeros said.
“I started playing soccer when I was six years old and I instantly fell in love with the sport. For years, I knew I wanted to play at the next level because I grew up aspiring to play like my dad. He used to play soccer in Mexico and even trained with professional teams so getting to play at the next level is a dream becoming a reality for me.”
She has high expectations about her future.
“My future plan is to hopefully make it to the pro-level in soccer. Even though many people think it is impossible, it is my biggest goal in life, and I hope to one day achieve it.”
