On the field, I feel that I am always ready for whatever happens. I am performance conscious and want to play to the best of my ability. My name is Kaden Connor, I am the starting goalkeeper for Mountain View High School, the Region lV ODP Team, and Boise Nationals Soccer Club. As the captain, and goalkeeper, I am able to see what my teammates can’t and I work hard to give direction to any teammate that may be able to help protect the goal and move into the attack. I feel that the best way to have success as a team is to work together and win together. Soccer is a team sport and it is difficult to do anything without the help of your teammates.

While I know that I will have to put in hours of hard work in order to perform at the same level as my future teammates, I also feel that I stand out from players my age when it comes to communication on the field. I have been selected three years in a row to play for the Region IV ODP Team and to travel to an interregional event in Bradenton, Florida. Over the past two high school seasons I was able to shutout the other team a total of 11 times. My most memorable performance came in the 2015 Idaho Club State Championships when I made 13 saves in a 3-0 loss. While the team lost, I was able to recognize how well I played but also see that both myself and my teammates still needed to improve for the next year. It would be a privilege to be selected to play at the collegiate level and I would work hard to represent the school both athletically and academically.

"I have had the privilege to coach Kaden for the past 3 years. Kaden has been Idaho's top goal keeper for those three years, out performing goal keepers that were two and three years older than him. He is an all around goal keeper and has the mental capacity to succeed at a very high level, even beyond his collegiate career. His tactical awareness as a goal keeper is extremely mature for his age, which made our team defense better as a whole. His shot stopping ability is among the top in the region and there is no one in the state of Idaho and perhaps in the region that has his tactical and technical awareness."
"Kaden was not only our most valuable player but was voted team captain by his teammates. His teammates respect him and listen to him because his verbal communication in games and in trainings sessions is spot on. His teammates rely on his knowledge to understand their roles on the team. Kaden is not just a great player but a fantastic person and great student. You will never be faced with ineligibility issues because he is dedicated to his studies and his sport. When you get Kaden you are getting the whole package."
"I would recommend Kaden to any coach or top collegiate program in the nation because he is the type of person that if he needs to work on something then he will work on it until he gets it. He wants to learn and wants to get better with every single training session he is in. He has never been to a practice where he wasn't trying to get better in the 3 years that I have coached him. I look forward to his future and the successes he will have."

The 6-2, 195-pound senior fills the net and covers it from post to post. His athleticism and knack for stepping up on the biggest stages have him drawing Division I interest and comparisons to Michael Soderlund, a 2011 Timberline grad who played for Indiana.
“He’s probably the best goalie that I’ve seen come out of Idaho in the last six, seven years,” Centennial coach Scott Lewis said.
