Emma Young has played soccer her whole life.  14 years, to be exact, and she’s now leading the Acadiana Wreckin’ Rams in her senior year. 

It’s her job, to make sure the young players on this team step up and contribute to assure a successful season. 

Emma says, ” We lost quite a few seniors and we have some freshman have had to step up and play.  so, we were concerned about that, but they have played well.”

As one of the senior leaders at Acadiana High, Emma not only plays soccer.  She’s a volleyball star, making the LHSAA All-Academic Composite Team for a 4.0 for all four years at Acadiana. 

Her success off the field, translates on the field, as she is one of the leaders for this year’s team.

Emma says, ” I just try to do the best i can, and help everybody out and do my part to win games!” 

And, by winning those games, Emma will help Acadiana achieve their season goal: making it far in the playoffs.
