Anyone have a list of defenders being offered serious scholarship offers? Didn't think so. Coaches offer for speed, playmakers and goal scorers
My daughter is a defender and has received as much if not more interest than anyone on her club team. Stop making generalizations. Maybe on second level club teams defenders aren't athletic, but on the top teams defenders have to be able to stop the starting attackers on the other teams. Same in HS. Just a silly statement. Don't disagree that colleges turn HS middies into defenders. But just silly to think there aren't a lot of great defenders out there. The senior UA teams have as many defenders as attackers. They are all going to great schools.
