  • The experiences that I have had definitely help to deal with different types of pressure.
  • I want to be a part of something that is spearheading the movement, if that makes sense? I’m actually investing in seeing myself as an equal to my male counterparts.
  • If I had a bad game or something like that, especially in the very beginning, it was such a hard transitional period that I would just really get in my head.
  • Unfortunately, injuries are a natural part of football.
  • I think women need more representation. Not just because we are women, but because we are incredible athletes. Incredible athletes should all be given the same opportunities. 
  • The better I got, the greater the pressure and the tougher his feedback would get.
