Kennedy beat out nearly half a million other student-athletes playing women’s soccer across the country, an impressive achievement in the long line of Gatorade POY winners.
And his achievements also go beyond the soccer field. She is a member of the National Junior Honor Society and the school’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter. She has also volunteered on behalf of G & J Ministries, which helps those in need, and Count Your Blessings, which is a faith-based retail store.
Through it all, he has maintained an A-minus average in the classroom and plans to graduate from school a year early.
