My favorite moment of my soccer career so far: ummmmmm.... I would probably have to say this whole season has been pretty amazing.
So far in my career, I've probably been through this many pair of soccer shoes: well considering that I wear my shoes until they die, I would guess about 27ish pairs.
I chose my Rice jersey number because: I was always #7, but that wasn't available so I chose "18" because 1 from 8 is 7.

Other than myself, the Rice Owl to keep an eye on this season: it is WAY to hard to pick just one person for this question.
The Rice soccer player with the best non-soccer talent: Andie and her ability to keep the whole team positive it times when it is easier to not be. It amazes me every time.
One thing I'd like to say, but you didn't ask: I have been truly blessed to get to play with such an amazing group of girls this year. Fans, thanks so much for coming out and supporting us. We appreciate it sooo much!!
