To become the best version of yourself, it helps to have people around you who share similar goals and aspirations. When Lindsey Romig was looking to improve her soccer game, she chose IMG Academy. Her time as a student-athlete proved to be far more rewarding than simply winning more games.
Before Lindsey made the decision to attend IMG, her coaches saw the potential in her to do great things. “My coaches wanted me to get some extra training and a better environment for myself to push me.” When the time came to attend high school, she knew where she wanted to go.
Moving from Virginia to Florida at a young age was certainly daunting, but Lindsey found a new home on campus in Bradenton. “The people at IMG were really like family,” she explains. “My teachers pushed me to be a good student as much as a good athlete.”
Training and education is important, but being with like-minded individuals, as Lindsey discovered, is also crucial. “Ultimately, the people that you’re surrounded with, that’s who you become like,” she continues, “and being around IMG students and other athletes while you’re training really helps you prepare for college and for what’s ahead.”
The hard work Lindsey put in has paid off time and time again. As a freshman at Tennessee, she held the record for fewest goals against average. Most recently, she helped her team win the SEC Championship. “That was probably my greatest experience here so far,” Lindsey says, “That’s something I’ll never forget.”
