Coach Falor's Comments

"Jen is the consummate forward and team leader for us. She finishes well, her first touch is clean under pressure, and her decision making allows her to attack the seams in the opponent's defense. She is very fast, both technically and tactically, which makes her a threat to create goals at any point in transition. Her fitness is always at an elite level and her ability to problem-solve during the run of play gives us a good chance at controlling the flow of the game for solid periods of time."
