Sydney Smith is a senior at Salem High School. This would’ve been her fourth year as a Varsity soccer player for Salem. High school soccer gave her a break from club and a chance to represent her school. The past four years she's created friendships that will last a lifetime. It helped her realize that she wanted nothing more than to play at the collegiate level at Western Michigan, where she will continue her career next year.
Sydney, we salute you!
Kudos to ESPN's Scott Van Pelt for leading the way in calling for these stories. Our producer Megan Garagiola thought we could showcase some in metro Detroit to share on our platforms.
