Yael Averbuch, the sophomore midfielder set the NCAA record for the fastest goal scored in a collegiate women’s soccer game netting the first goal just four seconds into the match. Averbuch grew up dedicated to getting better and always had her soccer ball at her feet.

From the NY Times: A decade ago, passing by on the street, who could have seen that the little girl with the soccer ball was a future candidate for the national team and possibly a World Cup or an Olympics in China?

“I knew what I was looking at athletically,” Gloria Averbuch said. “But that last part that convinces you to let them try, I don’t think we can know where it comes from or if we can even define it.”

How do you know if your child has it? “When she loves what she’s doing like nothing else,” she said. “And when the discipline and investment that’s required is never, ever a task.”
