Foxhoven featured in Tribune

Post by purple haze on Wed Sep 22, 2010 9:18 pm

The Trib talks with Danielle about this season vs. last. Notable quote: "The team comes first for me. I know that when I'm frustrated, that's the thing that will get me through, is that we're winning."

This is an informative article, with admirable comments from Dani and with Garrett's views of what she brings to the game and what Micaela brings. A few others have noted here in the past that Dani in fact shows improvement this year even though her scoring is down, and I agree. For one thing, I think she is now stronger receiving the ball and distributing with her back to the goal.

You are right, jc, but I still liked it better when Foxhoven was scoring loads of goals.

Class act for sure. I still think she is better on the field than the bench for UP.
It seems like she has been in up top on a number of goals lately, no matter who has been the finisher (the game winner v TAMU with Hallie, the equalizer v Penn St with Sophie and another with Micaela to put Penn St away come to mind). I hope she continues with the great attitude and the wins keep coming no matter who is in. It is nice to have scoring coming from several different players with Micaela, Dani, Hallie, Sophie, Keelin, Taylor and even Michelle scoring. I think it would be great to see Elli up on the left wing, as I think she brings a huge scoring threat also. It seems like the stars are starting to align for the Pilots, so let's hope it just continues. Smile

The thing that has stuck out to me is that when Dani has come into the game off the bench, the energy level on the field just seems to take off. She clearly comes into the game ready to give it her all and her team mates seem to step up their energy right along with her. I have to admit to being a bit puzzled when she was subbed out a couple of times after she really commanded the ball so well. In fact, Dani and Hallie both bring a different level of command of the ball than the frosh at this point. Their maturity shows well when they are in.

Converting goals and setting up other players are different kinds of talents, but, equally important. Also, it's about playing together and peaking at the right time. We'll need Foxhoven's scoring ability more at the end of the season than right now...

I absolutely agree that Foxhoven has improved.

A key is that the quality of Pilot strikers doesn't drop of when subs come in. Far from it! No matter who starts, there are known goal-scorers waiting their turn. The opposing D gets no rest. Sharing the wealth of goals shows that this is a team scoring effort and that passing, working, setting up teammates and being relentless are what put the ball in the net for this group. Foxhoven could have a breakout game at any time, and I hope to be there to see it.

Only in spirit -- but I love the thought.

Great credit to Dani for saying the right things in what has to be a really tough time for her personally as a player. It appears like she means it too. Her attitude has been spot on, and she gives it 100% when she is on the field.
