COACH ROFF SAYS
"Sarah is a very crafty attacking player that can be a playmaker up top or from a more withdrawn position. She has excellent technique and balance, which help her escape from pressure extremely well. She also has a feel for the game that is hard to teach, combined with great composure in front of goal. Sarah has the ability to be a difference maker in the Big Ten Conference."
