Coach Falor's Comments

"Kelly is technical and clean and has a confidence to her game that comes through when the pressure's on. She uses her athleticism well to completely cover her box. The part of her game that stands out above all is her bravery coming for crosses and through balls. Her ability to keep our defense organized will be critical to our success this season."
