Why do you love soccer? Competitiveness and team dynamics- everyone is in it for one common goal through all the blood, sweat and tears!
What do you bring to the team? Experience & Work ethic- always giving 110%
What are you excited about? Being able to play at a competitive level again!
What does this mean for you? It all seems to surreal yet. I thought my competitive days were over. (Besides the Sunday co-ed league of course.) Having this chance to play the game I love is everything. I am humbled and grateful to play along side some of the best talent in the area.

Shannon says...
The Green Bay Glory is special because of all the amazing people putting in the countless hours behind the scenes to make this a reality for me and all the rest of the girls! It is giving the opportunity to so many talented athletes in the area to showcase their abilities and be great examples to show the younger generations what their future could look like with hard work and dedication!
