Coach Falor's Comments

"Danielle has really solidified her role as a leader and a core part of our defense. She presents us with good size and athleticism which allows her to be very effective in the air on set pieces as well as in the run of play. Her communication has taken a big leap forward and she's become very good at starting our build-ups. Ultimately Dani is a tremendous shut-down defender when called upon."
