COACH GALLIMORE ON JOHNSON
"Katie and Jennifer Johnson. These kids again are just gung-ho to come in and make the best of the opportunity they have been given to be on the roster. I think they may surprise a lot of people. I think long term their athleticism and their desire to be good players is what's going to push them towards success. It will be interesting to see how they adjust to college soccer. It might be a little bit more of a long-term project. But, if its not it's icing on the cake because our expectations for them are that they are going to be learning."
