2009 Season Outlook:
A true student of the game, this 2008 Coach’s Award Winner was the hardest working member of the Pride squad last year, and is hungry for more in the 2009 season. Torie inspired her teammates every day last year with her commitment and dedication to improve, and all that hard work is sure to pay off for 2009. This midfielder used her speed, and passing game to help transition the ball up the field in 2008, however this season Pappas will be called on to increase her offensive threats, and put some of that Pappas power into goal scoring.
