(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Laurel Ramer is no stranger to the game of soccer.
"I've been playing since I was three or four," the Kasson-Mantorville senior said. "I feel like everyone tries out a bunch of sports when they're little, and this one kind of stuck. My mom always wanted me to do volleyball, but that was her sports and soccer is my sport."
And Laurel is darn good at it.
As a senior, she has played for varsity coach Chris Soderberg since eighth grade.
"I remember her as a little eighth grader and the seniors at the time being amazed, saying, 'Wow, I can't believe she's only in eighth grade, and she has foot skills like that already,'" Soderberg said. "I knew then that she was going to in line to break a lot of school records."
Records like 39 career assists and 79 career goals. She will likely finish 50 points ahead of the next person in the record books.
But when you watch Ramer command the field, the records are no surprise.
"I definitely would say I'm aggressive and a competitor, so I want to win," Ramer said. "I always like to be involved in the play. I get bored easily."
"She just truly enjoys being out there," Soderberg said. "She's competitive, but she's playing with a smile on her face."
