Evaluating Coach: Jason Sisneros
Sosna is a creative and composed midfielder. She has the ability to change the game with her exceptional vision and passing ability. She offers a unique combination of height and length - with outstanding technical skill. Off the field, she is positive, organized and responsible. Having had the chance to watch her train and play in matches on several occasions, I have no doubt that she is an excellent teammate, who is committed to the team's mission - cares about others and gives her best. I believe she would be a great fit for a program that presents a balance of high level academic commitment and quality soccer experience.
