Amy: What’s the most memorable goal you have ever scored? For me it was definitely the goal vs. Notre Dame last year!
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: The Notre Dame goal was the most memorable one for me, and the game itself. Hopefully you got to experience it in person.
Jerry Davis (King of Prussia, PA): What is the second thing – your teammates and coaches being the obvious frontrunner – that you will miss about UVA?
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: Obviously my coaches and teammates are No. 1. After that, I’ll miss Charlottesville and the Grounds.
chevyboi (Charlottesville ): What is your mindset coming into the game against high point?
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: Our mindset is to focus on one game at a time and to improve every time we step on the field. Also, to put together a complete 90 minute performance.
John (C’ville): Another question: UVa has a lot of star-power, but who in your opinion is the most under-rated player that we should watch for in the future?
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: That is a good question. I would say Emily Sonnett. Even though she is known as one of the best defenders in the nation, I don’t think she gets enough credit for our success.
Agnieszka Kowalska (Poland): Deep-lying playmaker vs. attacking midfielder. Which role do you prefer?
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: Of course, attacking midfielder. I think there are positives to both positions, but I feel that at attacking mid that I have more freedom to be creative.
Brett (Charlottesville): We all know how well you play soccer…what sport are you not good at?

Dick (Lexington): What is your opinion of playing on natural grass as opposed to artificial turf? Do you think the quality of play suffers on plastic pitch?

Megan (Bridesmaid): What is your ALL TIME favorite movie???

10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: I always shower before a game. That is basically it.
Jenny (Richmond): If you could pick another sport to play in college, what would it be?
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: Basketball. I wanted to try out. I was point guard in high school.
Nikki (Richmond): What does the team talk about when huddling on your knees before kick-off?
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: It is one final chance to highlight what our keys are to the game.
Tim (Charlottesville): What country would you really like to visit and play soccer?

10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: I have always put my faith first and believe that God has a plan for my life. I believe that I have been given the gift of playing soccer for a reason.
Emma Leigh Ponnett: I don’t believe Emily Sonnett has the best hair on the team because I have heard that she is actually losing her hair. Any thoughts?
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: I wasn’t aware she was losing hair. It must be from all the studying she does.
Kara (Charlottesville): What has the Girls Can Club meant to you?
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: It is a great avenue for young girls to be mentored by not only a great group of people, but also ones that they look up to as soccer players. I have enjoyed working with the girls and seeing the impact we can have on them.
Larry (Charlottesville): What does All In mean to you?
10523636.jpeg spacer.gif Morgan Brian: All In, to me, is the backbone of our team and program. It is embracing your role on the team and doing it to the best of your ability. It is a reminder that the team’s best interests always come first.
