Coach Gallimore on Sweeney:
"Brianna is a very skillful, strong and artful defender. She can be a destroyer if you need her to be, but she can also be more of a pick-pocket defender who wins the ball and keeps it for your team. She's spent time at central defense and holding midfield and has a great competitive nature as well as a calm and composed demeanor. I see her becoming a real field general down the line in her career."
