Nathan Hawley of Casper
Nathan is attending Casper College to pursue a profession as an Electrician. After he graduates, Nathan plans to work through the IBEW Apprentice and Journeyman programs. He will play for Casper College in their inaugural 2020 season and made history as the first player to sign on as a Thunderbird Soccer player this past year! He will continue to give back to Wyoming Soccer as a referee. He was Wyoming Soccer's 2019 Young Referee of the Year!
Nathan started playing soccer at the age of 9 for the Casper Blades. He has had playing experience at every position (including Keeper when he was younger) and this has helped him to develop good tactical understanding of the game, and the ability to step into any system of play and quickly get up to speed on expectations and responsibilities. He will be a great asset to the Thunderbirds!
Off the pitch, Nathan is an avid rock climber, and enjoys a host of outdoor activities. He enjoys camping, skiing (alpine), snow showing, mountain biking and kayaking, to name just a few. Nathan is an Eagle Scout, and has experienced challenges as both a member of a team, and that team's leader. The lessons he learned in scouting about overcoming adversity and adapting to ever changing situations and interpersonal dynamics have allowed him thus far to be both a good teammate, and an on field leader.
