Jamie Matozzo, 21, has been playing soccer ever since she was three -years- old. “I love the sport of soccer. It has taught me many valuable things in life such as leadership, discipline, teamwork and patience,” Matozzo said.
Matozzo came here her freshman year looking forward to playing soccer at the collegiate level. “I came to Cabrini because I knew I would be able to get involved with the school my freshman year. Also, this school is close to my home so that my mother would be able to come to my games,” Matozzo commented. “She has been and always will be my number one supporter and fan. I love you Mom!”
During the past four years, Matozzo has been a leader on and off the soccer field. She is a member of the CAP board, a resident assistant and is involved with campus ministry. On the field, Matozzo is a leader as well. She received the coach’s award her junior year and was named a captain on the team this year.
Her most memorable moment playing for Cabrini soccer was in her junior year of playing. “Last year we beat Eastern College 3-0. It was one of the best games I ever played in. We really came together as a team and kept pounding them. We grew as a team that day and had a lot of fun,” Matozzo said.
After college, Matozzo hopes to pursue a successful career and hopes to coach soccer. “I would like to coach soccer at the high school level or maybe even little kids,” Matozzo said.
Matozzo has many great memories from her four years at college. “I have been very fortunate here in the past four years. I have met many wonderful people and have had a great time playing. I look forward to the future, however,I am going to miss Cabrini and playing soccer.
