Player Profiles: Ali Myers
Ali Myers is a senior midfielder from Sugar Land where she was voted the most athletic female athlete at Clements High School for playing women’s soccer.
Myers has played in 66 games during her Texas State soccer career, totally 3,242 minutes. She has recorded two goals and a .118 shot percentage and a .588 shot goal percentage.
I asked Myers some fun questions so Bobcat fans can get to know her off the field.
Kiersten Ehr: When Myers isn’t playing soccer for Texas State she likes to enjoy the simple pleasures of the outdoors and catch up on her favorite television show.
Ali Myers: I really like riding my Pure Fix bike in Austin. I just like being outside hanging out. I just like doing different things on the river or paddle boarding, canoeing or just hanging out watching Netflix. Right now I’m watching “American Horror Story” season two. It’s really good. I’m really obsessed, yeah, its my favorite.
KE: On Myers’ bucket list is to travel the world for six months.
AM: I really want to travel to South East Asia across all those little islands, start in Thailand and end in Australia. I think that would be awesome. I really want to do that for six months when I graduate actually. I need to save money and go.
KE: If Ali had any super power she would want to be sneaky and have the ability to be invisible.
AM: A superpower, I would say to be invisible. I feel like that would be super cool, just like see how people are for days and no one knows you’re there.
KE: Growing up as a little kid Myers favorite children’s show stared the psychic Raven Symone on the Disney Channel.
AM: There’s so many classics. I would say “That’s So Raven.” Yeah, that’s my favorite.
KE: Currently on Myers’ music playlist are classic oldies.
AM: I really like oldies: ’70s, ’80s, like old school classic songs. Those are probably my favorite.
KE: If Myers could max out any credit card she would, without any hesitation, buy athletic clothing.
AM: Probably an athletic store. Honestly, those are like the most comfortable. Academy, Dicks Sporting Goods, that’s always good. Cabela’s, that’s freaking cool.
KE: Growing up, Myers looked up to the American professional soccer player, coach, two-time Olympic gold medalist and the 2012 FIFA World Player of the Year Abby Wombach.
AM: I really like Abby Wombach. I mean, she’s a classic. She’s been an idol of mine since I was little… she’s awesome.
KE: If Myers could meet any celebrity in the world she would meet the American actor and singer that made his name in “High School Musical.”
AM: Don’t laugh at me, but I would say Zac Efron.
KE: Ali has always wanted to dedicate her life to the sport she loves soccer.
AM: Actually It was my dream to be a professional soccer player just like everybody else but I don’t think thats going to happen. There’s still hope.
KE: Myers has one more home game in San Marcos on Sunday for Senior Appreciation Day.She reflected on her four years with the Bobcats and what she will miss the most.
AM: Honestly, just the team, just being a part of such a close nit of girls and relationships, you know, leaving them behind. I’ll still be friends with them in life, but it won’t ever be the same, you know, going through workouts and pre-season and games and stuff; just the atmosphere.
KE: After Myers graduates she hopes to pursue her passion for photography.
AM: I really want to go to photography school for like a year or two. Not sure where, but I kind of want to travel outside of the state.
