Addy Francois is a senior midfielder on the Ashwaubenon girls’ soccer team.

She would love to attend a World Cup in Berlin, Germany, because of their dedicated fans.

Francois’ favorite move is the pull-back because it creates space from the offensive to the defensive player.

Ashwaubenon had a very young team last season. Talk about how you work through those issues and how you need to be a leader as an upperclassman.

“Being such a young team last year allowed for greater team chemistry and communication this year. Stepping into my third year on the varsity team, I know it is my role to become a leader for the underclassmen and help mediate any differences we may have as a team.”

What teammate would you like to be with if you were trapped on an exotic island?

“I would have to choose Remi Lade because we are so similar. She would always keep me laughing.”

How many times can you tap the ball to yourself without letting it hit the ground?

“I’m not going to lie, I don’t have the best ball skills, but on a good day, I can hit the ball three times without it hitting the ground.”

What’s the hardest part about performing in a soccer match?

“Trying not to overthink my shots and passes. A lot of the times I overreact to my touches, which then leads to rushed passes and turnovers.”

Would you choose a week in Europe or one in Africa?

“I would choose Europe because I traveled there in the summer of 2017 through the German American Partnership Program (GAPP) and fell in love with its historical sites and architecture. There’s so much to see – I can’t wait to get back.”

If you could be somebody for a day, who would it be?

“I would want to be J.J. Watt. Not only did he attend school at UW-Madison, but he is one of the most respected and selfless players in the game of football.”

What are your goals for the end of the season?

“With our team filled with some upperclassmen and talented young freshmen, I believe we can shock a couple of teams.”

What do you like better, a good thunderstorm or sunshine?

“I like sunshine because it puts everyone in a better mood and reminds me of summer/warm weather.”

Do you have a nickname?

“Usually just Addy or ‘middy’ for being a midfielder.”

Rollercoasters or a themed-water park?

“Themed-water park.”

What is one thing that other teammates or coaches don’t know about you?

“I get really nervous before games up until the tip-off.”

Talk about a volunteer experience that made you feel good while at Ashwaubenon.

“Having over 100 hours of volunteering while at Ashwaubenon, my favorite time was during the holiday season. My family and I always volunteer through the Salvation Army, who provides parents with presents to provide for their kids. This experience made me feel good due to me knowing I had a direct impact in making a kid’s Christmas the best it could possibly be.”

What are your college aspirations?

“I’m unsure of where I want to go to college, but I plan on getting a business degree and possible travel abroad somewhere.”

What are your hobbies?

“Going up north, hanging with friends, playing sports and traveling.”

What three words describe you?

“Funny, sociable, committed.”

Who is your favorite soccer player?

“I really like Julie Ertz because I learn a lot from watching her play as a midfielder, and her husband Zach Ertz is a very good football player.”

What are three things you’re going to miss about attending Ashwaubenon?

“Being so close to all my friends, being on a structured sports team and all of the teachers who have spent extra time with me answering my questions/clarifying material.”
