http://www.allbuffs.com/content.php/2322-Marshall-Called-Up-To-USWNT Nikki coached my daughter's club soccer team prior to being picked up by the Thorns and made a great impact on her game and is a huge inspiration for my daughter. She has kept in touch with the girls since starting her professional career and kept up with their progress. My daughter and a few teammates made a road trip to watch Nikki play in Kansas City, and Nikki invited them to have dinner with the team and made them feel very welcome and special. It really blew my daughter away. Congrats to a great soccer player, a great Buff, and most of all, a great person.
