LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - 11 year old Linley Wright of Shallowater is leaving Thursday for an opportunity of a lifetime. She was selected at a camp in Hobbs by International coaches to go train for 10 days in Ireland. Her Elite Soccer Training coach Javier Perez says it wasn’t the luck of the Irish that won her a spot.
“She has an amazing left foot. She was taking people on quite well. She was confident in what she was doing and she was very focused. Those are attributes that the coaches picked up on,” Perez said.
Linley will be training eight hours a day with professional coaches in Ireland and she’s thrilled for the opportunity.
“It’s going to be really fun and I’m really excited. I just can’t believe I was this blessed to go. It has a beach and I’ve never been to a beach.”
