Recommendation: Sean was a standout center striker for our team as a freshmen and huge reason our team had a successful season leading to the CCS Final. Sean was our leading goal scorer and leader in assists for league play in the brutal WCAL, as well as our four playoff games, tallying over 20 goals on the season as well as over 15 assists. We play a counter attacking brand of soccer with a true 4-5-1 and Sean allows us to do so by playing the lone striker role perfectly. Her movement into space to give her a little room to receive coupled with her strength to hold off center backs gives her a great opportunity to do so. She has the wherewithal to fight off center backs and holding mids and the intelligence to know when to lay the ball back off to our oncoming midfielders or when to turn and utilize her impressive 1v1 skills. Always dangerous when she can get a running start and extremely good at using body feints to get defenders off balance before she uses a change of direction move to beat them. Her ability to draw fouls in the right instances is also quite impressive for a player her age. She has the ability to take multiple defenders off the dribble and will do so, but is also intelligent enough to know when she's headed into enough defenders that taking a foul is the better idea. Her ability to finish in a variety of ways is getting better and better and I believe will be a great strength in the future.

In terms of the type of person she is and the type of teammate, she has a constant energy when on the field for a game or a practice. She truly loves being out there to play and she is a fantastic teammate who contributed greatly to a very positive team dynamic.
