Rush Journal Series: 2nd Edition

Rush is not a player, or a singular club, but all 85+ Rush clubs around the nation and world. Individual stories from players around the globe come together to form Rush Nation, pursuing the game with passion and purpose. Below is a Rush Journal from Cancun Rush player, Bruno Diaz. This 2nd Edition of the Rush Journals comes after the 1st Edition from Colorado Rush player Cooper Erickson, posted during the 2018 Spring season.

Meet Bruno, a seventeen-year-old player from Cancun, Mexico. His journal shares his understanding for the game and where it will take him:

“I live in Cancún, Mexico, and Rush is kind of new here. It started about 5 years ago thanks to Hector Ortega; he was the one to contact Rush in the United States and build a team here. I have played soccer since I was four years old, and from the moment I started it has been my favorite thing to do; being on the field is what I enjoy the most, and I hope it will eventually lead me to a college scholarship through Rush.

Playing for Rush helped me define my game, before that I was kind of drifting on different positions until I found the kind of game I am best at and most comfortable playing. One thing I really like about this team is that everyone who has been in it has improved somehow, and the most important thing I’ve learned is to respect

the sport.

There are a lot of memories I have with Rush, but my favorite is when I got called to play with New England Rush as a guest player for a tournament. I was a little bit nervous because I didn’t know what it was going to be like, but when I arrived the team was very welcoming and on the first game of the tournament I scored two goals, winning 2-0. I was impressed and very happy, and on the following games we played really well. It has been my favorite experience in Rush and playing soccer.

Some advice I would give to younger players is to play calm, identify your style, focus on your weaknesses and turn them into strengths, and work on your strengths so they become unstoppable. But the most important thing is patience; this sport won’t give anything for free, it will give back depending on how much effort and dedication you give to it.”
