Morgan Brian's Story - One Nation. One Team. 23 Stories.

At 22, Morgan Brian is the youngest player on the USA’s 2015 Women’s World Cup Team and has starred at the youth National Teams level for some time, helping the USA win the 2012 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup. But it wasn’t always that way. As an under-sized youth player in Georgia and Florida, she earned the nickname “Plankton” and was cut from the Olympic Development Program team.
