Ask a Pro : Lindsey Horan
It’s not every day that you get to sit down for ice cream with a professional soccer player and pick her brain about her past, the present, and her future. Four lucky members of the G12 Nike Girls Team had this opportunity last week when they met PSG bound Lindsey Horan at Cold Stone. Here are some of the questions Audrey, Carlee, Cori, and Rylie had for Lindsey…

Q: What was your favorite goal you ever scored?
A: Once she juggled through a few players and then flicked the ball over the goalie’s head for a goal!
One interesting fact that Wes Hart told the girls was that the Paris team could have taken some of the current US National Team players however, they choose Lindsey over all of them!
The four U12 girls were excited to spend the evening with Lindsey and look forward to keeping in touch with her while she is in Paris. She is role model to all of them!
