What is your favorite Backline Soccer thing or moment from 2016?
Typing in BacklineSoccer.com for the first time and seeing it connect and going to Houston with some of the BS crew.
Helping out the Afghanistan WNT by giving 30% of profits from merch shop.
Helping design shirts and then buying shirts I had input on.
My favorite moment from 2016 was getting to meet RJ, Chelsey and Sandra at the NWSL championship game.
The group photo of you all.
Rise of the Red Stars and NWSL Championship in HOU. Most importantly, everyone that has come into my life through Backline and WoSo. The ENTIRE backline crew – past, present, and future. Whether in passing, writing, interviewing, or on TSR. The impact of this sport on me is indescribable. From all the players, coaches, front offices, WoSo Media, and fans – I am truly a better person for having gone through a season. I look forward to growing with you all in another.
The tweets/articles that made our twitter implode. Also increasing our follower count by like 250 since September. Seeing social media grow in front of my eyes in general was a cool thing.
Without a doubt, meeting everyone in Houston. It felt like meeting a big extended family that I’m grateful to be a part of.
Easy, when the site was created!
Chelsey’s rant about the commentary after USAvJapan on The Scouting Report.
What are you looking forward to in 2017:
Seeing how the site grows and working on The Scouting Report. And trying to get some more guests and interviews during the NWSL season.
The NWSL draft and covering more news from foreign leagues.
Helping you guys sound as awesome as you are.
I’m looking forward to covering the Spirit full time in 2017.
Watching The Pride to improve as a team, playing in the new stadium and finish better in a better position on the table.
NWSL season FIVE. and Orlando NWSL Final.
I’m most looking forward to seeing NWSL teams be full load with their players as there is no major tournament for the US this year. I am also looking forward to learning more about the game and getting up to speed on more teams and also more broad players.
I’m really looking forward to covering Seattle games in person. Also, I’m hyped to watch this site grow even more and get the recognition it deserves.
For the site to grow. It’s already incredible how far this site has come since August.
Writing more for the site.
