What do you bring to the team? A no nonsense mentality, that loves fluid movement of the ball to expose gaps in the defensive line.
Why do you love soccer? The art in the movement and the feeling of winning a tough game with your closest friends by your side.
What are you excited about? I’m excited to gain more experience and meet new people that share my love for the game.
What does this mean for you? This opportunity means that I will be able to develop more as a player and a person; thus allowing me to return to my junior year at St. Cloud better then I have ever been. Along with that, I will have gained knowledge that I would not have been able to learn if it wasn’t for Green Bay Glory.
Glory is special because for the first time young women in the northeastern side of Wisconsin will be able to showcase their talent and be able to express their love for the game like never before.
