With Ferris soccer having the fall season delayed to the spring, many incoming freshman layers have used the semester to adapt to the new college life.
Kendra Brown, a freshman forward for the soccer team, is thrilled to play at Ferris. She was signed amongst nine others of the 2020 season. With the rough start at Ferris due to Covid-19, she did not let that get the best of her.
“I’m having fun in Ferris it’s a good experience, I get to work more with criminal justice, and it has been a good overall experience. I also like the community and networking through soccer.” Brown said.
While Kendra joins the bulldog’s team, she is not the only one from DeWitt, Michigan.
On the Bulldogs soccer team, there are currently three players that are from the same hometown of DeWitt, Michigan. Madelyn Dickens, Makenzie Dawes and Kendra Brown joined the Bulldogs this semester. Brown met Madelyn and Makenzie in the same program in when she was in the 3rd grade.
“Growing up in the same area I got to play with them and create bonds. I have fantastic memories with them, and I admire them. It’s exciting getting to play with them, they have grown so much as players, and I hope we can have a good year due to circumstances.” Brown said.
Brown before joining the Bulldogs had built a strong resume.
Brown was all-stater all academic in high school. She was top 50 players in Michigan for the last two years and won the cup from her freshman to junior years of high school. She Was also on first team All-CAAC Selection and multiple time selection to the Lansing State Journal Dream Team.
