Catching Up with Morgan Stanton

Catching Up with Morgan Stanton

Written by EYEBRONCO reporter, Kendra Cavaney '15

Morgan Stanton (MS) is ready to have a fresh start: new school, new team, and new coaches. She is ready to see all the great things Santa Clara has to offer as well as getting the opportunity to play with a great group of girls. Santa Clara Broncos (SCB) got the chance to ask Stanton some questions about why she chose SCU and what her goals are.

SCB: How is your summer so far? What have you been doing?  

MS: I played with the Colorado Rush Women's League this summer.  I have played with the W-League every summer since U-15.  In June my U-18 Rush team played and were finalists in the U-18 ECNL National Championships.  I also spent a great deal of summer with my younger sister Julia. We are close, so it was important to both of us knowing I was leaving this year to college. 

SCB: One thing you're looking forward to here at Santa Clara? 

MS: A fresh start. Although I love and miss the girls I played with all these years at Colorado Rush, some since I was 4 years old.  I am ready to learn from a new coaching staff and I am excited to play with and get to know my new teammates.  

SCB: Why did you choose SCU?  

MS: There were many schools I was looking at and in reality they all had great things to offer.  However, for some reason when I came to SCU, met with the coaches and spent time with Brandi it just felt right.  It felt like a good fit and even as signing day came I still felt confident in my decision to attend and play at Santa Clara University. I hope to bring something special to the team and to contribute as much as possible in a positive way.   

SCB: Any goals as a player for your first college season?

MS: I have many goals both academically and soccer wise this first year. First and foremost I hope I am able to manage everything and be able to maintain success both in class and on the soccer field.   I hope to make new friends and build some strong relationships with my teammates and coaches and hope they become my family away from home.  I feel that by being coached by Jerry and the staff here at SCU it will help me reach my long term goals of continuing to play at a high level and continue to grow and become the best overall player I can be.
