Head Coach Tom Stone on Alli Murphy:
"Alli is the quintessential attacking mid with all the tools. Trained by her uncle Reagan and then by Kim Colin at the D'Feeters SC in Dallas, Alli has been encouraged her whole career to be creative and dynamic on the attack. She is extremely technical and her ball striking is off the charts. Great on set pieces and very dangerous running at defenses. She reminds me of the point guard type you just have to have in big games to control the tempo but also be good enough to win the game for you when you need her to. Our fans will love her skill and mentality on game day and the first time she unleashes this cannon of a shot she has, they will be on their feet."
