Mustang’s Elise Foreman – Character Counts Presented by Eskridge Honda

By Corey Heim

A senior at Mustang High School, Elise Foreman has proven herself to be a strong member of the girls’ soccer team, competing as a defensive midfielder.

She has played both soccer and basketball since she was a young child as her parents were athletes and passed the love of sports and competing down to her.

“The thing I like most about competing is all of the valuable lessons you learn from it,” Foreman said. “You grow so much as a person when you face the adversity of losing or injury, but you also learn whenever you’re at the top. You also learn so much from your teammates and coaches that surround you.”

Foreman credits her teammates and families as being her biggest supporters and motivate her to be as successful as she can in all aspects of her life. She credits her past success and opportunities to their encouragement and help. In return, she has worked hard to be a strong support system for her teammates and friends as well.

“I want everyone around me to be successful and enjoy themselves at the same time,” Foreman said. “So I try to be the best teammate and leader that I can possibly be- I try to lead by example and communication.”

Foreman is also active in her high school community as she is involved in Relay for Life, is the Social Media and Powderpuff Chair for the school, member of the National Honor Society and a member of the Principal Chamber Leadership Council.

Foreman has also proven to be a successful student as well. She currently carries a 4.0 unweighted GPA and a 4.26 weighted GPA.

After graduating in May, Foreman plans on attending Oral Roberts University on a soccer scholarship where she is planning to major in business.
