Last season, Oberlin was named first team All-Big South Conference and in her freshman season was named to the 2005 All-Conference second team. This season, the forward has netted a goal and has started all seven of Liberty's matches.
My earliest soccer memory is … playing AYSO soccer for the same coach for three years.
Other than soccer, my favorite sport to play is … I play a lot of basketball, but I also love to play volleyball. We have a sand volleyball court in our backyard, so we get family games of volleyball going a lot. I love it!
When I have an hour of free time, I like to … relax, read a book and watch TV or a movie with my friends.
If I won a million dollars, I would … pay for Physical Therapy School and of course take my mom and sisters on a shopping trip
If someone would look at the songs on my iPod, I would be embarrassed for them to see I have this song … My iPod is broken, so they wouldn't see anything!
It is not good for you, but I still eat … potato chips and French fries! Yum!
A place I would like to visit one day is … I would love to take a hiking/camping trip into the Grand Canyon! Also, I would like to go to the Caribbean because it looks beautiful in pictures. I want to see it for myself.
If you could eat dinner with three other people (living or dead), who would they be and why?
It's more than three people, but my family because they live twelve hours away, and I don't get to see them much.
Who is your favorite Bible character and why?
Paul, because of his amazing desire to know God more, and also because of the way he loved God above all else.
When surfing the Internet, what website do you visit the most frequently?
Usually I check just my email and Cornerstone University sports to see how my older brother's team is doing.
What is something about you that other people don't know?
I never played club soccer, I actually played AAU basketball for eight years.
What is the best part about being on the Liberty Women's Soccer team?
The friends and sisters in Christ that will be a part of my life forever
Who is your favorite Superhero and why?
Superman. He speaks for himself.
What cartoon character are you most like and why?
I couldn't think of one, so I asked my sister and she said "Tweety because you are so sweet and innocent." I'm pretty sure she was kidding!
After graduation, I would like to … go to physical therapy school to get my doctorate and work with either athletes or kids.
