It’s only been five months since Morgan Brian (center) was the youngest member of the U.S. team that took second place at the FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup in New Zealand. But a lot has happened during that time. She has turned from 15 to 16, the new cycle for the U.S. U-17s has begun, and as the only holdover from that last group, her role with the team has flip-flopped. At 5-foot-6, with silky smooth skills, excellent speed and a tremendous work ethic, she is growing into her role in the middle of the field.
