2018 girls soccer, more information to follow "I'll take this group of girls as my team every single day over any other team in the world. Here's what they do:

You tell them to #BringYourWhy; they bring it.
They see an obstacle; they overcome it.
They set goals; they achieve them.
We challenge them; they rise to the challenge.
You praise them; they stay humble.
You be hard on them; they make themselves be better.
They win; they grow closer as a team.
They lose; they grow closer as a team.
They win; they thank God.
They lose; they thank God.
They end a season an unwanted way; they leave every ounce of heart on the field, they hug, and they don't dare hang their heads in defeat.
I'm proud of these girls.
I'm proud to be one of their coaches.

I'm proud to be a Lady Tiger!"
