Favourite Position - Of course a striker - I loved to score goals, that was my role in most teams, and something I worked really hard at!
Worst Injury - Probably too many to list! Tearing my ACL was a tough challenge to come back from but obviously my back injury ending my career would be the worst.
Best advice - Practice makes perfect... if there is something you can't do, go out and practice until you master it. Was something I did a lot as a kid, with my brother out in the back yard!
Favourite way to relax - I love music, and water - any beach or lake etc I find very relaxing - and I love movies. Spending time with friends and family always helps as well.
