"Sydney Leroux was a 6-year-old first-grader when Christie Rampone made her debut with the United States women’s soccer national team. That was 17 years ago and now the two are teammates on the U.S. squad, Leroux an energetic forward and Rampone a wise defender." "That longevity has also left Leroux with some daunting goals to aim for. If she’s able to hang on until she’s 38, for example, she might wind up going against Rampone’s eldest daughter who, coincidentally, was a 6-year-old first-grader when Leroux made her national team debut."

The players were so pumped and happy when they came out to meet us, it made the waiting in the rain and the 3hr long delay totally worth it to share that moment with them.
Happy birthday jonesy!
