‘Enduring Spirit’ citations

When I uploaded the print edition of Enduring Spirit, I noticed a lot of footnotes didn’t fit because the URLs were too long. Simple fix: I’m directing people to this page.

[29] Matheson also raved about her living arrangement in an NWSLSoccer.com interview, saying other teams in the league should try it. “”We didn’t want to be housed with a host family because we’re older players and wanted to have our own space and this is really the perfect solution. It’s free housing for the league and we get a fabulous apartment and our own space and we get to meet all these amazing people. I think the people at Ingleside have really been enjoying it too. They’ve jumped on board with the team and they come to all the games. It’s just a win-win situation for everyone.” http://nwslsoccer.com/home/728179.html

[34] A couple of months later, Mike Jorden made it clear that Roberts was indeed fighting for time from Day 1 and coped with it well: “I think Julia, from start to finish, has done a great job. Initially, we thought she’d barely get in the team. To get in the team and play the amount of minutes she’s played, for a rookie, she’s done a great job. She’s skillful, she’s smart, she knows what she needs to work on — she needs to work on the defensive side of the game. From an attacking standpoint and possession, she does a great job. We try to play. And UVA tries to play. We keep it on the floor. She’s that kind of player. She keeps the ball moving, she connects well with Lori (Lindsey) and fits in well.”
