What the coaches had to say about Leyton:
We asked Leyton to be player of the month for December because she has such a great passion for soccer. She has great individual technique and shows great mastery of the Coerver skills and moves we taught this past fall. We know how much Leyton loves practicing her skills at home and coloring in her Buzz sheets because we can see how much she improves every week! We're excited to have players like Leyton in the Hive because her passion for the game will allow her to reach her tremendous potential.
