Topeka Select Elite – 18U: 2017-Present; Jersey #4
  • Coached by Brian Cole – brian.cole@snco.us
  • Defensive back and a midfielder as needed
  • Takes large percentage of penalty and corner kicks for team
  • Coaches comments, “Lauren is a player gifted with size, speed, and versatility. Lauren is a player who can both stop the opponent's offensive attack, and start our counter-attack. Lauren's height makes her an ideal target for corner kicks, and her leg strength is an added bonus for switching the field of attack. Lauren's versatility lends her to be effective on defending back, center midfield, and offensive wing."

  • Coached by Dave Waters - davewtop@gmail.com
  • Guest player for several tournaments this Club season
  • Plays defensive back, center back and defensive mid as needed
  • Takes large percentage of penalty and corner kicks for team
  • Coaches comments, ““Lauren is one of the most gifted players we’ve had. That’s because she can play anywhere - and has. She has the entire package; tall, strong, skilled and fast. Her height gives her great vision and the ability to win challenges in the air. She is a powerful and accurate ball striker from anywhere on the field which is why you’ll see her running to take our free kicks and corners. She is calm, cool and collected. She is able to deftly elude pressure with the confidence to put the ball where it needs to go. As a defender, Lauren's a brick wall. As the saying goes, ‘she’ll stand you up.’ She's a true ball winner who knows what to do with it next. Great player, great teammate, great person. Exactly, the kind of player coaches hope for."
