Alyssa (Davis) Sullivan 2006-2010
Team Captain 2010
Alyssa is a true competitor, she left all on the field! Her biggest attribute was her support for all. #1 fan of all her teammates and her younger siblings former Trenton Soccer Players Tad Davis and Angie Davis. Even today you will see her and their daughter Lilley on the sideline cheering on her husband TT Soccer Coach Ian Sullivan, who also was a soccer player at Trenton.
1. What was your favorite personal memory of HS Soccer?
My greatest memory of high school soccer was not only being one of the top teams in our district, but also all of the fun we had at team dinners, bus rides, and bonfires! It’s the little things you look back on and realize were so fun— the handshakes before games, warm up songs, and inside jokes. I have great memories of looking up into the stands and seeing my family supporting me. Your high school soccer career is what YOU make of it! Be that positive team member that pumps everyone up before games and keeps a positive attitude despite losses and rough patches during the season 🙂
- What was your greatest win of your 4 years on Varsity?
My greatest win of high school soccer was during my senior year (2010). In our first district tournament game, we had a dramatic come from behind overtime victory over our league rival, Allen Park… after losing to them earlier in the season! It was a 3 way tie for league champs— Trenton, Woodhaven, and Allen Park. It is a win that advanced us further in the tournament and a win I will never forget!
- What are you doing these days?
I have been a Registered Nurse at Beaumont Trenton Hospital for 5 years. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Ian Sullivan. We have a 19-month-old daughter, Lilly. I’m due in June with baby girl #2!
- What advice do you give this year’s seniors?
My advice to this year’s seniors would be to research every career that interests you and reach out to those in the field. See if you can shadow them! You can only learn so much from a book or lecture…try to find someone with personal experience. Create a good balance of studying & fun next year. Your freshman year of college is important for the rest of your college career— don’t start off on the wrong foot! And don’t be afraid to ask for help!
- How many years did you make varsity
- What number did you wear?
- Anything you want to say to the girls based on how they did not get to play their season.
I am so sorry you didn’t get to experience your soccer season. Try to remember the good times you had in previous seasons. When all of this passes, get all of the girls together for team runs & scrimmages!
8. Were you a captain?
Yes, I was captain my senior year. I loved the responsibility and honor that came along with the title!
