Liam O’Brien // Men’s Soccer
My most memorable experience at Belmont thus far would be this past soccer season and how successful we were making it to the Southern Conference Championship. This season was one of the best in program history and arguably one of the most difficult as well having to deal with COVID-19. What made this experience memorable for me was knowing how hard every guy on our team worked during the season and in the summer and the many sacrifices made as well following COVID-19 protocols. Making it to the final was well earned, but I know we are hungry to win a trophy next season and am very excited for the future of this program.
Belmont has helped me grow as a person tremendously in my three years I have been here so far. Belmont has taught me the importance a community can have on a person. I’ve learned that it is okay to reach out and ask for help when you are in need. Belmont has provided me with so many resources and genuine people within this community who are all looking to make you as successful as possible in sports and life. I think a community so strong and caring like Belmont’s is very rare to come by and I am very thankful to be a member of the Belmont family. Belmont has also taught me that you have to grind every day to accomplish your goals, but it is worth putting the work in. My time at Belmont has pushed me to become a harder worker on the soccer field and in class. Long term, this is crucial to making what you want in your life and I have only Belmont to thank for that and fortunate to be able to learn that this early in my life.
