Meet Believe in it® Athlete Jackson Gouvin. In late May Jackson accepted a spot on the Liverpool FC Academy U11 team in Lexington, South Carolina.
A year ago he tried out for an Academy team and was cut. His dad said, "His initial disappointment turned into serious motivation."
They found the Online Soccer Academy videos and the one about me not making a team to help Jackson improve. He was inspired. They trained consistently all year long.
Even a serious illness couldn't prevent Jackson from making the team this year. Right around the time of Academy evaluations he came down with a bacterial infection. The infection in his stomach caused him to lose 10 pounds and miss the last two weeks of school.
Despite all of this he was able to overcome the odds and earn his spot in the team.
Jackson is proof that small improvements daily equal big improvements over time.
Congrats to Jackson! I am very proud of him! He is a Believe in it® Athlete and his dad says, "He proudly wears his Believe in it® bracelet!"
