Kyle Fleming is a rockstar role model and a phenomenal friend. Throughout high school, I was always inspired by him on and off the soccer field, and I am so g;ad he’s been in my life. We have tons and tons of hilarious memories and ridiculous inside jokes and stories, “red balllll” to name one of them 🙂 Kyle is a genuine man with a super sense of humor and just a great outlook on life. He’s kind to those around him and doesn’t really let anything get to him that much. One of my favorite parts of Kyle is how we could be so goofy and not focused off the field, but come game time, Kyle was focused and a leader and someone everyone looked up to. He leads by example and with his actions. I remember when I was going through the time of coming out and how the soccer team specifically was taking it. Kyle was awesome about it and we had such a strong relationship that we could make fun of it and be okay with it 🙂 It was fantastic, and with his support I gained the team’s support and understanding and I can’t thank him enough for that. Kyle, thank you so much for all of the crazy games and times we’ve had and thank you for being there for me when I needed it. Thank you for sticking up for me when I needed it, but also thank you for all of the hilarious jokes because I honestly loved them 🙂 Thank you for being the compassionate guy you are and thank you for being in my life!
