Please excuse the delay in responding to your incredibly humbling, emotionally overwhelming and
heartfelt email. Both Andy and I were so touched by your words, and to be honest that doesn’t really
envelop or grasp the enormity of it for me because that journey, that day, and that moment was a lifetime in the making. The beauty of it as I sit back and look at it with perspective is that it was done with the deepest amount of respect, love, passion and friendship. When I look at your photo that is exactly what I see. My teammates and I are ever so grateful for your support since you were little. Playing for the national
team was a privilege and I dream of one day giving back to our next generation through coaching one of our now many national teams. I hope that you will continue to be ever present in the stands and sharing your friends’ stories while proudly wearing your USA gear!
I hope to see you at a game soon.
