Coach Gallimore on Johnson
"Dana Johnson is just a flat-out soccer player. There is no doubt that we recruited her because she could be such a tremendous playmaker for us. She has tremendous vision and she dances on the ball with a lot of skill. Physically she had a lot of trouble her freshman year, but if she can stay healthy and get her fitness level to where she is able to be consistent in her training than she will be a great player."
