Damn it Heather still hasn’t followed me. Then again it might have to do with the fact that I’m never on twitter. I’m still all kinds of jelly!
«The last time Solo won a title with anyone other than her national team was in high school, when she led the Richland Bombers to a Washington state title in her senior year to culminate a 109-goal-scoring career as a forward. She transitioned to goalkeeper with the Washington Huskies and became the best keeper in the program’s history and one of the best in the college game. She was the first keeper to ever win Pac-10 Player of the Year and in her senior year was the only keeper on the Hermann Trophy watchlist.»

can we talk about this woman for a second? this woman who was a fantastic forward in her youth career and later transitioned to being a goalkeeper, basically the biggest change in position a player can make? this woman who has since made the position her own and has almost indisputably become the greatest goalkeeper to ever play the women’s game? this woman who has overcome so much in her personal and professional life to get where she is today? if you’re not amazed by Hope Amelia Solo, even just as a goalkeeper and not a person, idk what to tell you honestly.
