George Marks, a rookie goalkeeper for Charlotte FC, is not only passionate about mindset and firmly believes in it, he is also an avid practitioner.
Marks was drafted in the third round of the 2022 MLS SuperDraft after starting three consecutive seasons for Clemson University, culminating his career by leading them to the 2021 NCAA National Championship in his senior year. Among the major reasons for Clemson’s success last year, as well as his own success on and off the pitch, was Clemson coach Mike Noonan’s belief in the power of the mind. He instilled in his team and players a winning mindset by providing opportunities to learn and grow their mindsets.
“The Soccer Resilience® team is excited to announce that Charlotte FC goalkeeper, George Marks, has joined the Soccer Resilience® family as the newest ambassador! Not only was George the captain of the 2021 National Champion Clemson Men’s Soccer Team, but he studied psychology and attributes his growth and success to his mental game. Playing the most psychologically demanding position on the pitch, George understands the setbacks and adversity that every player experiences. The impact George will have in strengthening players’ mental fitness will be felt across individual coaching sessions, team mental training sessions, and much more!”
