Her dream was to play a game she loved and to have fun doing it.
Having fun is exactly how she finished this season. The last couple of years has come with some serious struggles, but I am so proud of how she handled it.
We can't thank Tom and Mark enough for their work with her. The above picture is Tom, unfortunately Mark was not at this game.
She may not dream of playing soccer in college, but she does dream of coaching her own team. She has worked with a lot of coaches, some good and some not so good, and she has learned a lot from each one. I have no doubts that she will become an amazing coach.
I also have no doubts that I will be shipping her cleats to some far away navel base. I always smile at the memory of some kid that said she throws like a girl. She said, "oh yeah, I will show you how a girl throws." Then she threw the ball at him. Hard.
