Do you think Christen is underrated?

She was the 4th draft pick…. This isn’t a joke, she was legit the 4th after being the best forward Stanford has ever seen to this day, breaking every record available (she still holds them) for a forward and winning the Hermann trophy..  

Did I answer your question or do I need to say more?

Introducing Janine Beckie (7/7)

Kick off is less than two hours away. Let’s meet our last rookie to celebrate

Introducing Texas Tech legend, Janine Beckie

Janine Beckie is the future of Canada’s attack, there’s no denying it. This is a special player. Janine Beckie is the type of player that makes you want to pick up your cleats again after watching her. She already has 3 goals in 9 matches for the CanWNT senior squad. The striker is just beginning her journey with the national team but has the potential to be up there with some of the greatest Canadian forwards of all time. 

Janine was originally born in Saskatchewan on August 20, 1994 but grew up in Colorado and has dual citizenship. She initially was a member of the U18 US national team in 2011-2012 and participated in U20 US camps in 2013. However, she decided to pledge allegiance to Canada and joined the U20 program in 2014. Her brother Drew also played for the U23 Canadian Mens team and currently plays for Ottawa Fury FC.

Janine first donned a Canada jersey during the 2014 U20 Women’s World Cup. She played in all 4 games and scored 2 goals including the game winner against North Korea that sent Canada into the quarter-finals.  A standout in the tournament, the newbie wowed fans and critics alike. The FIFA Technical Study Group pointed her out in the tournament and said this about her: “versatile player, fast and mobile, good dribbling ability, excellent off-the-ball movement”

Janine is a team player, 100%. She proved this during the 2015 Pan Games. During the opening match against Ecuador, in the 86th minute, Canadian GK Steph Labbe was shown a red card. Canada had already used up all three subs and therefore could not let backup GK Kailen Sheridan into the match. Janine Beckie, a forward might I remind you, who had already scored two goals that match, volunteered to go into net in replace of Labbe. Donning some gloves and a pinnie, she bravely walked into that net and cemented a place in fans heart’s forever. 

Beckie has also had an outstanding collegiate career. Having just finished up her senior year at Texas Tech, she’s leaving the school as the all-time leading goal scorer with 57 goals. In her final season with the Red Raiders, she led the Big 12 in shots (114), points (33) and goals (14), was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and was named a semi-finalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy. Additionally she was named the 2015 Big 12 Championship Offensive Most Outstanding Player en route to Texas Tech’s first ever Big 12 Championship.  

Most recently, Janine made waves as the lone Canadian player drafted in the 2016 NWSL Draft. She was drafted in the first round, 8th overall, by the Houston Dash. 

Like, she’s kind of a big deal.

I hope I have convinced you that Janine Beckie is an impact player. If you’ve never seen her in action, I am so excited for you and I urge you to tune in to Canada’s game this tournament and hopefully see this girl get some goals. 

Earliest you can see this superstar in the making is tonight when Canada takes on Guyana on cbc.ca


Frisco, TX, February 13, 2016 etc…

Las Tri 0-1 USWNT

—Lindsey Horan as holding MF did the holding part great.
—So *OVER* Hinkle.

Pictured for Las Tri: Teresa Noyola (MEX 8),  Janelly Farias (MEX 3), Ariana Romero (MEX 2), Monica Ocampo (MEX 11) and Alina Garciamendez (MEX 4/Stanford 4)

—And Las Tri VS USWNT woulda been more interesting if KO subbed instead of Hinkle. KO would’ve given Monica a run for her mo-nay

Also if Jill did right by KO, four Stanny Trees would have been on the pitch today (KO, Press, Noyola and Garciamendez), as well as all three Stanford MAC Hermann recipients (KO, Press, and Noyola). 

Little-known fact:

KO & Noyola are two of only three players in the history of women’s collegiate soccer to unite the Hermann Trophy and the NSCAA Scholar Athlete of the Year awards (2009 & 2011, respectively), joining Portland’s Christine Sinclair in 2004 & 2005.

—Ecstatic Ali Riley is always a bonus.

TBT: January 9, 2010

KO, Tobin & Cheney at the annual MAC Hermann Trophy banquet, where Kelley beat out the other two for the previous year’s trophy. 

Little-known fact:

Stanford’s Kelley O’Hara & Teresa Noyola are two of only three players in the history of women’s collegiate soccer to unite the Hermann Trophy and the NSCAA Scholar Athlete of the Year awards (2009 & 2011, respectively), joining Portland’s Christine Sinclair in 2005. (Sinc won the Hermann in 2004 too, but wasn’t top #jocknerd that year).

All three of Stanford’s MAC Hermann recipients (O’Hara, Press & Noyola) were Academic All-Americans, the #jocknerd bracket of the All-America selection.

Kelley O’hara | USA’s Women’s National Team 

  • Scored 57 goals, tallied 23 assists at Stanford
  • Won the 2009 Hermann Trophy as the top collegiate soccer player in the country.
  • In the U.S. Under-20 teams, she is tied as the all-time third leading scorer and is sixth in number of caps played.
  • Played EVERY minutes of the 2012 Olympics women’s football tournament

Yet she hasn’t seen a single minute in the 4 games the USA has played in the 2015 Fifa Women’s World Cup in Canada.
