WHY I CHOSE PENN STATE
"I chose Penn State because of its high-end academics, competitive soccer program, and most importantly, the people surrounding the program that truly make Penn State what it is. I chose Penn State because it’s home."
DAMBACH ON KERRY
"Kerry is a natural left-sided player and is as dynamic and dangerous as I've seen in the recruiting process. Her tireless work rate allows her to round the corner and whip crosses in regardless of whether she's playing as a back or a winger. She will be a nightmare for opposing outside backs!"
