“You just have so many younger players that are coming in and getting
their first professional playing experience and doing well with it, so I
feel like they’re only going to continue to get better,” Morgan said.
“I’ve already seen them grow so much this season that I’m really excited
to see what next season has to offer for them.”
Being a rookie in the NWSL hasn’t just been about the on-field action, though. For rookie midfielder Dani Weatherholt, Morgan’s been a role model for her because of the impact she has off the pitch.
“She’s been a role model to me because you can see how she influences little girls, and I think that’s definitely been one of my goals coming in is the influence I get to have on little girls and be a role model to them,” Weatherholt said. “That’s why I feel lucky to be [with] the Pride is because of [co-founder] Kay and [founder] Phil [Rawlins]. They really value [community].”
