Jazmyn Guerrero lives and breathes the game of soccer, loving every moment of it along the way.

Along with her passion for the game has come a true dedication to being the best and it has paid off in big ways. Recently, the 14-year-old freshman at Franklin High School suited up for Mexico in the CONCACAF U15 Tournament in Tampa, Florida, where she helped the team to a third-place finish.

“It was truly an amazing experience to compete against top players from around the world,” Guerrero said. “It was a great test for me to see where I am in terms of my level of play. As the tournament progressed, I continued to gain confidence and for us to place third as a team was special. We worked hard at camp to get ready and it paid off.”

Guerrero has been affiliated with Team Mexico since earlier this year and it’s her experience of playing at a high level and at multiple positions of forward and midfield that have helped her. She even played some defender at the CONCACAF Tournament.

“I’ve always tried to be as versatile as possible and that’s certainly helped me through the years,” Guerrero said. “I know I can still get better moving forward and as I gain more international experience that will make me more well rounded.”

Guerrero has played for the El Paso-based Cosmos FC for several years and has also played for club teams in San Antonio and Dallas, competing in several national tournaments along the way which certainly helped her in receiving the opportunity with the Mexican National Team. She plans to play for the tradition-rich Franklin program. In Texas, high school soccer begins in January and ends in April.
