Brittney Harris, Forward

Brittney Harris finished her career ranked in the Top 10 in both career goals and career points. She helped lead the Eagles to a 47-26-5 record during her four years in the program.

Coach Van Horn's Comments

What can I say about Harris! I remember the first time I saw her play in the recruiting process. I can tell you where, what field, which way her team was attacking and what color her jersey was. I can't tell you how excited I was when she responded to my email after seeing her play. Needless to say she played here all four years and I enjoyed every minute of it. I hope she did too.

Harris was one of the players that takes a while to unlock. I remember watching her during warmup of her first session of preseason. She looked very disinterested. Not to say I ever figured her out, but it took me a long time to get comfortable with her. She had played for a really good club and played for a really good team and coach. I guess I felt like I had to prove to her that I was just as good at coaching and this program was going places. She was one of the players you feel like you have to continue to prove yourself too. I have to say thank you to her and her teammates for challenging me to bring my best every day.

I knew we had turned a corner with my first recruiting class when Brittney scored a goal against Greensboro in her second college game her freshman year. She scored a goal from outside the box with pressure on her to beat Greensboro 1-0. I remember thinking that the second year would not be like my first year. We had brought in difference makers. Harris was a difference maker!!
