Coach Gallimore on Branham: "Colby has good foot speed, quickness, and she shields the ball well. She plays really well with her back to pressure and she has played in the midfield a little for her club team, but we could use her as a forward. Colby is a hardworking and skillful forward who does very well with her back to goal. She plays very much like former Huskies Tami and Melissa Bennett in her ability to hold possession of the ball up front. "
