Coach Falor's Comments
"Amber's ability to play a wide variety of positions has grown each year and this year will be no different as we expect her to be a focal point of our defense. As a wing defender with the ball at her feet, she is dynamic in combinations with our midfield. She is a tireless worker and has an astute understanding of our tactics and the individual abilities of her teammates. We rely on her creativity and competitive spirit on a daily basis."
