Coach Julie Shackford on Tyler Lussi:
"Tyler is one of the most passionate soccer players we have watched over the last few years. She is a forward with the ability to score and create goals. She is quick, deceptive and can break people down on the dirbble. Her work rate is relentless. She is also a great passer and student of the game. We are excited to see how she fits in with our attack!"
