Georgiadogs.com checks in with freshman forward Caroline Waters in the latest Q&A. The Woodstock, Ga., native was on the U-19 club team that won the national championship this summer. She has come off the bench in eight games for Georgia, and has one assist.
Q: What has been the biggest difference for you coming from high school soccer to college soccer?
A: In high school you're kind of the best player on the team whereas in college every player is good and you're learning to play with good players, and you're getting good balls and you have a good team behind you. It's a lot different.
Q: How have you found assimilation process with this team?
A: I absolutely love it, coming in in the summer I got to know the upperclassmen early so I was good friends with them off the field so it was really cool getting to step on the field and play with them all considering I was already friends with them.
Q: What's been your favorite thing about college life in general?
A: Probably all the freedom. College soccer is really awesome but it's nice to be able to do what I want to do when I want to do it.
Q: What's it been like being in such a big freshman class?
A: I think it's helped. I've loved having a big freshman class , we're all really close, we hang out together, we do stuff together, we do dinner. It's been really cool because you always have someone to eat with, or in your classes, or somebody to ride the bus with so I love having the big class.
Q: What's been your favorite moment of the season so far?
A: It was probably the first game because the most exciting moment is when you're coming out of the locker room before the game and you're doing the dog walk. It's just so real.
Q: How have you found the coaches since you came to Georgia?
A: They're actually awesome, coming in I didn't think they were very funny , I thought they were just reserved, quiet people but now that I'm here they're so funny and they're really helpful and they always want to make you a better player.
