Christen Press has the power to wow defenders and audiences alike. The 2010 Hermann Trophy winner and all-time-leading goal-scorer at Stanford with 71 goals, she possesses speed, creativity and nuance. In her first season playing professionally, she was the 2011 WPS rookie of the year. When the league folded in 2012, Press took her talents to Sweden, where she became the 2013 leading goal-scorer of the Swedish league. In 2014, she returned to the NWSL. Now a forward for the Utah Royals, she has never been more at ease or confident in what she has to offer—on the field and off.
