The leadership a soccer team gets from a quality goalkeeper is something that can’t be taught—it has to be innate.

Clinton’s Kennedi Richardson has played that roll for two years as a starter, and she’s determined to continue this roll at the collegiate level.

On Jan. 18, 2019, Kennedi Richardson signed a letter of intent to play soccer for Holmes Community College.

“I’m excited about playing at Holmes because I will be to grow as a goalkeeper with their goalkeepers coach and they offer nursing, which is what I want to study,” Richardson said.

Playing a key roll for the Lady Arrows in goal, Richardson has helped Clinton be a consistent presence in the post season.

Clinton’s head coach Thomas Bobo said Kennedi’s growth has been more than notable. “We started working with her on learning how to be a quality keeper when she was in 8th grade, and now we feel she is one of the top keepers in 6A soccer.”

“She’s a very energetic and enthusiastic player,” Bobo added. “We’re glad she’s got a chance to play at the collegiate level.”

As a sophomore, Richardson was named Most Improved Player and was voted by her team as “Ms. Clutch” during her junior year.

Kennedi is the daughter of Dewayne and Alicia Richardson.
