Rocky McNeff ’15  – Left/Mid Defense

What have been the best parts about playing for Lewis & Clark for the past four years?

The most rewarding part of my four years here at LC has been watching the team progress to where we are today. When I came in, we didn’t have the mental toughness that this current team has now. This season we came in with the mentality that we can and will beat all of the teams in conference, and that has made such a difference.

What is one of your fondest memories from LC soccer?

Well, this whole season our coaches have gotten Rochelle Jordan (’17) and I mixed up, so in practice they always yell “Rock-Rochelle!” and then yell at one of us using the wrong name, so that’s been pretty memorable.

What do you wish to leave behind?

My puns to my hilarious successors, my Messi move to Kelly Priest (’18), and everything I own to Kylie Carera (’16.)

What are your post-grad plans?

I want to teach English abroad and then come back to the States to teach Kindergarten or High School English, while pursuing a coaching career as well.

If you were to have a yearbook quote, what would it be?

Geena Fong ’15  – Goalkeeper

What have been the best parts about playing for LC for the past four years?

The best part about being here my last four years was the transition from being on a losing team to being on a winning team. We were able to do this because of head coach Jim Tursi, the incoming players and the change in mentality.

What is one of your fondest memories from LC soccer?

One thing I will never forget is the people I met along the way. Everyone who came into my life made such a lasting impact that I will always cherish.

What do you wish to leave behind?

 I know that this team is in good hands. I hope to leave behind our valued conversations with Lindsey Milgrom (’16) and Marisa Santarella (’16). And the weirdest member of our house goes to Karley Pate (’16).

What are your post-grad plans?

I will be pursuing a finance career in a place where I can get a finance job.

If you were to have a yearbook quote, what would it be?

I’ve learned that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
